What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In which situations is it especially useful?
When you've got an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choice. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail only to the initial address. This feature is useful if you have several websites, each one with a unique e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to a single email address, it will be easier for you to keep track and never miss a message as you have overlooked to check on a specific email. In case you run a business, you can take advantage of this function to check the e-mails received by different divisions. A further benefit is that it is possible to use an official e-mail address for various needs, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all e-mails sent to it inside your personal mailbox. In addition, you can forward messages from one email to multiple ones, in case a number of people should be involved with the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
It is really simple to set up forwarding for virtually every email created inside a shared hosting
account from us. You can do this either while you set up a brand new e-mail address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment in the future as the forwarding can be activated and deactivated for every current mailbox with a couple of clicks. It is also possible to decide if a backup copy of the incoming messages will be kept on our servers, which is a pretty valuable option. This will be a fail-safe whenever the remote mailbox is not accessible for some reason, not mentioning that you will always have a backup of all emails. If this option is not activated for a given e-mail on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will stay on our server. When the remote mailbox is unavailable temporarily, you'll lose this message.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us, you'll need just a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses created on our server to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are going. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may as well decide if a backup of the messages has to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option isn't a must have, it's very practical because you will have a backup of the emails on our end in the event that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got simply a temporary problem, you risk losing e-mail messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an email, nothing will be stored on our end unless you selected a backup to be maintained.
