The term email forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to and as far as they're concerned, this is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to, for example, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of e-mail addresses it is possible to forward them all to a sole mail box, which will make monitoring e-mails simpler and will permit you to collect messages and respond quickly. The feature can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the cloud hosting plans, will help you forward any e-mail in the account to an alternative one with ease. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or whenever you want afterwards if you decide that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to consider if you need a duplicate of the messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an outside address, which is briefly unavailable. This feature can be activated and disabled whenever you want, but if you use emails for crucial matters, it is better to use it, as no data of the e-mails are kept on the server if the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes just a mouse click to disable it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need only a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses configured on our system to a third-party address. Inside the exact same section you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you could also choose whether a copy of the messages has to be kept in our system or not. Even though this feature is not a requirement, it is extremely handy as you will get a backup of the emails on our end in case that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got a temporary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as when our server receives and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be saved.
