The term e-mail forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to and as much as they're concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the email may be sent to, for instance, even though the customer in no way intended the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've several e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward all of them to a sole mail box, which will make keeping track of email messages simpler and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond on time. The feature could also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our web hosting plans, will let you forward any e-mail in the account to a different one easily. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or whenever you want later if you choose that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you prefer a backup of the messages to be kept on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be briefly unavailable. This option can be activated and disabled whenever you want, and when you use email messages for critical matters, it is best to use it, since no data of the email messages are maintained on the server if the option is not active. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding any more, it takes only a mouse click to deactivate it.
