With an email forwarding enabled for any specific address, all of the inbound e-mail messages will be sent to a third-party e-mail address you have picked although the latter will not be in the list of recipients and the sender won't be aware where their email will go. You can use this type of feature in case you have multiple email addresses since it will likely be easier to get all inbound e-mails in one mailbox rather than signing in and out of numerous ones on a regular basis or setting up a number of mail boxes in an e-mail application. In case you run a business as well as an organization, the email forwarding is a solution to look at all emails received by numerous departments for improved coordination. It's also possible to make use of this function the other way round - an e-mail sent to a standard mailbox can be sent to multiple people.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared hosting plans, will allow you to forward any e-mail address inside the account to a second one without difficulty. You can do this either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or any time later if you choose that you'll need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you want a duplicate of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an outside address, that's temporarily inaccessible. This option can be enabled and deactivated whenever you want, and when you use email messages for crucial matters, it is advisable to use it, because no data of the e-mails will be kept on the server if the option is not active. In case you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company, you'll need just a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses created on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same area you will also have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming emails are sent. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may as well decide whether a backup copy of the messages has to be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it's very valuable as you will have a backup of the messages on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got only a temporary issue, you risk losing e-mails as once our server receives and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end unless you selected a copy to be saved.
