What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In which situations is it particularly handy?
When you've got an email and you activate forwarding for it, all inbound emails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choosing. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will send the email to the first address. This kind of feature is useful if you have numerous websites, each one with a unique e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to one email address, it will be easier for you to keep a record and never overlook a message as you have overlooked to check on a given e-mail. In case you manage a company, you can use this feature to check the e-mails received by different divisions. An additional benefit is that you'll be able to work with an official address for a number of purposes, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all e-mails sent to it in your private email address. In addition, you can forward messages from one email address to multiple ones, if a number of people needs to be involved in the e-mail communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the hosting
plans, will allow you to forward any email address in the account to another one with ease. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or at any time afterwards if you choose that you want this function. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a copy of the email messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, that is briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and deactivated at any moment, and when you use email messages for important matters, it is far better to use it, because no data of the email messages are kept on the server when the option is not active. Any time you determine that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take just a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, it will take a few mouse clicks to forward one of your emails located from the account to a third-party mailbox. You will be able to do this through the feature-rich Email Manager part of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during this process you could also choose if a backup of your email messages must be maintained on our servers or not. The aforementioned feature is optional, but rather useful as you will have a copy of your inbound e-mails, so regardless of whether something occurs with the other email address, you simply won't lose any data. You can enable or deactivate the forwarding for every email address whenever you want and forward the e-mails to numerous email addresses if you want. Additionally, you will be able to view a listing of all the email addresses that are now being forwarded as well as exactly where the email messages are being sent to.
