Email Forwarding - find in which cases it can be useful and how to activate it from your web hosting account.
When you've got an email address and you enable forwarding for it, all inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your preference. The email sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail to the original address. Such a feature is useful in case you have numerous websites, each with a different email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to just one e-mail address, it will be simpler for you to keep track and not miss an e-mail as you have neglected to check on a specific e-mail. For those who have an enterprise, you’ll be able to take advantage of this feature to keep track of the emails received by various divisions. A further advantage is the fact that it is possible to work with an official e-mail address for a number of purposes, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all e-mail messages sent to it inside your personal mailbox. You can also forward e-mails from a single email address to multiple ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
plan with our company and you set up e-mail addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to another address of your preference. The option can be enabled whenever you set up a brand new mailbox or at any time afterwards and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will control your account. You will also have the option to decide if a duplicate of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is you will always have a copy on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or if perhaps it is not active for reasons unknown during the time an email message is forwarded. In case the option is not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers even if the remote email address is working or not, so it generally is a good idea to have it active just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us, it will take you only a few clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails configured on our server to a third-party address. In the very same area you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound emails are going. You're able to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also decide whether a backup of the emails has to be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature isn't a requirement, it is quite valuable since you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got a momentary issue, you risk losing emails as when our server gets and forwards an e-mail, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
