The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they're involved, it is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail can be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you've a number of email addresses it is possible to forward them all to a single mailbox, which can make keeping track of e-mails easier and will allow you to collect e-mails and respond to them in a timely manner. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting plan with us and you create email addresses inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a few clicks to any other address of your choice. The feature can be enabled when you set up a new email address or any time later on and disabled just as quickly if you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will control your account. You'll have the option to decide if a duplicate of the inbound e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The main advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if anything happens with the other email address or maybe if it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. In case the option is not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it is usually a good idea for it to be enabled just to be prepared.

The aforementioned feature is optional, yet handy since you will have a backup of your incoming e-mails, so even if anything occurs with the other mailbox, you'll not lose any information. You'll be able to enable or disable the forwarding for every email address at any time and forward the messages to multiple addresses if you wish. You will also have the ability to check out a list of all mailboxes that are forwarded and also where the e-mails are being forwarded to.
