Find out about e-mail forwarding, how it works and in which circumstances it is useful to get it activated.
With an email forwarding enabled for a given e-mail address, all incoming e-mail messages will be sent to a third-party address you have selected even though the latter will not be in the list of recipients and also, the sender won't be aware where their email will go. You can use such a function if you have multiple emails since it will be far more convenient to get all inbound messages in one mailbox instead of signing in and out of different ones continuously or configuring a variety of mailboxes in an e-mail client. If you manage a company as well as an organization, the e-mail forwarding is also a way to check all e-mails obtained by various departments for better coordination. You could also make use of this function the opposite way round - an email sent to a standard mailbox can be sent to multiple people.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
plan with our company and you set up an e-mail address in your account, you are able to forward it with only a few mouse clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be enabled when you make a brand new mailbox or at any time later and deactivated just as quickly if you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can handle your account. You will also have the option to choose if a copy of the incoming emails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is you will always have a copy on your end if anything happens with the other email address or maybe if it's not active for some reason at the time an email message is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system even if the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it can be quite a wise decision to have it active just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
The feature-rich Email Manager tool inside the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plan
, will allow you to forward any email that you create with the account to one or multiple other email address with just a handful of mouse clicks. You will additionally be able to view a list of all mailboxes that you've got, those that are forwarded and exactly where they're forwarded to. The option can be enabled and disabled at any time and you can also decide on if a copy of the inbound email messages ought to be kept on our system or not. Even though this option is completely optional, it might be more convenient if you make the most of it, as you will have a backup of the e-mails if there's any kind of issue with the remote mail server. Even if there's a short-term problem and no email messages are lost on our servers, you might still not receive a forwarded message in case it was relayed by our servers within the downtime.
