When you've got an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all inbound emails will be sent to a third-party email address that you pick. The sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail to the original address. This function is effective for people with a number of sites, each one with a different email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to one email, it will be simpler for you to monitor and not miss an e-mail because you have neglected to check on a certain email address. If you manage a business, you can take advantage of this function to keep track of the e-mails received by various departments. Another advantage is the fact that you're able to make use of an official e-mail address for a number of reasons, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all messages sent to it inside your personal email address. It's also possible to forward email messages from one e-mail to numerous ones, if a number of people should be involved with the e-mail communication.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting package with us and you set up e-mail addresses inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to any other address of your choice. The option can be enabled whenever you set up a brand new email address or at any time later and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. In addition, you will have the option to decide if a backup of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is basically that you will always have a copy on your server if anything occurs with the other email address or if perhaps it's not active for reasons unknown at the time a message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it generally is a good idea for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take you only a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails set up on our server to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are going. It is possible to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you may as well decide whether a backup copy of the emails needs to be kept on our servers or not. Even if this option is not a must have, it's very helpful because you will have a copy of the emails on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got simply a short-term problem, you risk losing email messages as when our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end unless you selected a backup to be kept.
