When you've got an email address and you enable forwarding for it, all inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox that you pick. The sender won't be aware of this and he will send the message only to the original address. This type of feature is useful in case you have several Internet sites, each with a separate e-mail for contact, for instance. By forwarding all messages to one particular email, it will be simpler for you to keep a record and not miss an e-mail message because you have neglected to check a certain email. If you manage a business, you’ll be able to employ this function to check the communication received by various departments. Another advantage is that it is possible to use an official address for some needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all of the messages sent to it in your private email address. It's also possible to forward e-mail messages from one e-mail to multiple ones, in case a number of people should be involved in the email conversation.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

It is really easy to set up forwarding for just about any email set up inside a shared hosting account with us. This can be achieved either while you set up a brand new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want afterwards because the forwarding can be enabled and disabled for any existing email address with only a few clicks. It is also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming emails will be maintained on our servers, a really practical feature. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not accessible for some cause, not mentioning you will have always a copy of all messages. When this option is not activated for a specific e-mail on our end, an incoming message will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote email address is unavailable temporarily, you will simply lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager interface inside the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all the Linux semi-dedicated plan, will help you to forward any email that you create in the account to one particular or multiple other email address with only a couple of mouse clicks. Additionally, you will have the ability to see a list of all of the mailboxes that you've, those that are forwarded as well as where they are forwarded to. The option can be activated and disabled at any moment and you can also select whether a backup of the incoming emails ought to be kept on our servers or not. Even though this option is completely optional, it might be more convenient once you take advantage of it, because you will get a copy of your messages if there's some problem with the remote mail server. Even when there's a momentary issue and no e-mails are lost on our system, you may still not receive a forwarded e-mail in case it was sent by our servers during the downtime.
