If you have an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail just to the initial address. This type of function is effective if you have a number of sites, each one with a different e-mail for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to just one e-mail address, it will be simpler for you to keep a record and not neglect an email as you have forgotten to check on a specific e-mail address. If you have a company, you’re able to use this function to check the communication received by different departments. A further advantage is that you'll be able to use an official address for a number of purposes, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all of the emails sent to it in your personal mailbox. In addition, you can forward email messages from a single e-mail address to multiple ones, in case a number of individuals should be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the hosting plans, will allow you to forward any e-mail address inside the account to a different one without any difficulty. You can do this either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later in case you decide that you'll need this function. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you prefer a copy of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which can be momentarily unavailable. This option can be activated and deactivated whenever you want, but if you use e-mails for essential matters, it is best to use it, because no records of the emails are maintained on the server in case the option is not enabled. If you decide that you don't need forwarding any more, it takes just a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take only a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails configured on our system to a third-party address. Inside the exact same section you will also be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming e-mails are going. You're able to activate or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you could also decide whether a copy of the email messages should be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature isn't a must have, it is practical because you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got a momentary issue, you run the risk of losing emails as once our system gets and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be stored.
