When you've got an email and you activate forwarding for it, all of the incoming emails will be sent to a third-party email address that you pick. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will send the email only to the original address. This kind of function is useful for people with a number of websites, each with a different e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to just a single e-mail, it will be easier for you to keep a record and not neglect an email because you have overlooked to check a certain e-mail. For those who manage a company, you can employ this feature to observe the communication received by different departments. A further advantage is that it is possible to use an official address for some reasons, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all of the messages sent to it in your personal mailbox. You can also forward messages from one email to a number of ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved with the email conversation.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting plan with us and you create email addresses inside your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your choosing. The feature can be enabled when you set up a brand new mailbox or at any time later on and deactivated just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose if a copy of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if something happens with the other email address or if perhaps it isn't active for some reason at the time an email message is forwarded. In case the option is not enabled, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and erased from our system regardless of whether the remote email is functioning or not, so it is actually a good idea to have it enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take only a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mails configured on our server to a third-party address. In the same section you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are sent. You can activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you could also choose whether a backup of the messages should be kept on our servers or not. Even though this feature is not a requirement, it is quite practical as you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even if they have just a short-term problem, you risk losing emails as when our system gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be stored.
