Discover more about e-mail forwarding, the way it operates and in which scenarios it is valuable to have it activated.
The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they're concerned, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be forwarded to email@example.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got various e-mail addresses you're able to forward each of them to a single email address, which will make monitoring emails easier and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The function can also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting
plan with our company and you set up an email address in your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your choosing. The option can be enabled when you set up a brand new mailbox or any time later on and deactivated just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to choose if a duplicate of the inbound e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is you will always have a backup on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or if perhaps it is not active for some reason at the time an email message is forwarded. If the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers even if the remote email is operating or not, so it can be quite a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
through us, you'll need only a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses set up on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming e-mails are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you may as well decide if a backup copy of the email messages has to be kept on our servers or not. Although this option is not a necessity, it's practical since you will get a backup of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even when they've got simply a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as once our server receives and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be kept.
