The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an email from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they're involved, this is the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail might be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are different reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got a number of e-mail addresses you are able to forward them all to a single email address, which will make keeping track of e-mails less difficult and allows you to collect messages and respond promptly. The function could also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
It is really easy to set up forwarding for just about any e-mail address set up inside a hosting
account from our company. This can be accomplished either when you make a new mailbox through your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want later because the forwarding may be enabled and deactivated for every existing email address with only a couple of mouse clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty 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 e-mails. When this option is not enabled for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote email address is down temporarily, you will simply lose this message.

The feature-rich Email Manager tool within the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plan

Additionally, you will have the ability to see a listing of all email addresses you have, which ones are forwarded plus exactly where they're forwarded to. E-mail forwarding can be enabled and disabled at any moment and you can now furthermore select should a backup of the inbound emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option is not required, it may be more convenient if you take advantage of it, because you have a backup of the emails if there is some issue with the remote mail server. Even when there's a momentary problem and no emails are lost on our end, you might still not get a forwarded message in case it was sent by our servers throughout the downtime.
