If you have an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the email only to the first address. This kind of function is useful if you have several web sites, each with a different email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all messages to just one email address, it will be simpler for you to keep track and never overlook an e-mail because you have neglected to check a certain email. If you have a business, you’re able to employ this function to keep track of the emails received by various departments. Another advantage is the fact that you can make use of an official e-mail address for various needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all messages sent to it inside your private email address. It's also possible to forward emails from a single e-mail to numerous ones, in case a number of people should be involved in the e-mail conversation.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting package with us and you create an email address inside your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to another address of your choosing. The option can be enabled when you set up a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is you will always have a backup on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for reasons unknown at the time an email is forwarded. In case the feature not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers regardless of whether the remote email address is functioning or not, so it is actually a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, you will need just a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails configured on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are sent. You can enable or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may as well choose if a copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it's very practical since you will have a backup copy of the emails on our end in the event that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing email messages as when our server gets and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end unless you chosen a backup to be saved.
