If you have an email address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the message to the initial address. This kind of feature is useful in case you have multiple websites, each one with a different email for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to a single e-mail address, it will be easier for you to monitor and never pass up an e-mail because you have neglected to check on a particular email. In case you run an enterprise, you’re able to employ this feature to observe the emails received by various divisions. Another advantage is the fact that you're able to work with an official email address for some needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all emails sent to it inside your personal mailbox. In addition, you can forward messages from one email to numerous ones, if a number of people needs to be involved with the email conversation.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting plan with us and you set up an email address inside your account, you are able to forward it with just a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your preference. The feature can be enabled when you make a brand new mailbox or at any time later and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming messages will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is you will always have a backup on your server if anything occurs with the other mailbox or if it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an email is forwarded. If the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system no matter if the remote email is working or not, so it can be quite a wise decision for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, it will take you just a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails configured on our end to a third-party address. Inside the exact same area you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming messages are going. You can enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you can also decide if a backup copy of the e-mails has to be kept in our system or not. Even if this feature isn't a must have, it is extremely handy as you will have a copy of the emails on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got just a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
