What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In what situations is it really handy?
The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as much as they're involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer in no way intended the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've a number of emails it is possible to forward each of them to a single email address, which can make monitoring email messages less difficult and allows you to collect emails and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature could also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, you'll need just a couple of clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses created on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will additionally be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. It is easy to activate or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you can also decide whether a backup copy of the emails has to be kept in our system or not. Even though this option isn't a must have, it is quite valuable because you will have a backup of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got just a momentary issue, you risk losing emails as when our system gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing at all will be maintained on our end unless you chosen a copy to be saved.
