What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In which instances is it especially handy?
When you've got an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the incoming e-mails will be sent to a third-party mailbox that you choose. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will send the email just to the initial address. This feature is useful if you have several web sites, each with a different e-mail address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to just one e-mail address, it will be easier for you to monitor and never miss an e-mail message as you have forgotten to check a specific email. In case you run a company, you’ll be able to use this feature to monitor the communication received by different divisions. A further benefit is the fact that you can use an official address for various reasons, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all of the messages sent to it in your personal email address. It's also possible to forward e-mail messages from a single email address to numerous ones, if a number of people needs to be involved in the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our shared hosting
plans, will allow you to forward any email inside the account to an alternative one with ease. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new email address or at any time later if you choose that you will need this function. During the process, you will be able to decide if you prefer a copy of the messages to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an outside address, which can be temporarily inaccessible. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any time, and when you use emails for important matters, it is advisable to use it, because no data of the emails will be maintained on the server in case the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take a mouse click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
Forwarding an e mail address hosted in our system will be very straightforward in case you have a semi-dedicated server
package with us and will also not take you more than a few mouse clicks to set up. This can be done from the Emails part of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and you will be able to keep track of the email addresses which are being forwarded and where your e-mails are going to with a glance. The feature can be activated and deactivated for any of the mailboxes inside your account. You can also enable or disable a helpful option we provide - a copy of the messages being sent through our system can remain on the server. This way, you will always have a copy of your incoming email messages and you will not need to concern yourself with losing any information. If you have this option disabled, you risk losing e-mails if there is a problem with the remote email address.
