When you've got an email and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choosing. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will send the message only to the original address. This type of function is effective if you have a number of websites, each one with a different e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to just one email address, it will be simpler for you to keep a record and never neglect a message as you have forgotten to check a given e-mail address. In case you have a business, you’ll be able to take advantage of this feature to check the emails received by various divisions. An additional advantage is the fact that it is possible to make use of an official address for a number of needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all e-mail messages sent to it in your personal mailbox. It's also possible to forward email messages from one e-mail address to multiple ones, if a number of people should be involved in the e-mail communication.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the website hosting plans, will help you to forward any e-mail address in the account to another one without any difficulty. This can be done either during the creation of a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later on if you decide that you need this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you want a copy of the e-mails to be kept on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an outside address, that is momentarily inaccessible. This option can be enabled and deactivated any time, but if you use e-mails for essential matters, it is best to use it, as no records of the e-mails are kept on the server when the option is not enabled. If you determine that you don't need forwarding any more, it will take a click to deactivate it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take a few clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses configured on our server to a third-party address. Inside the same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are sent. It is easy to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may as well decide if a backup copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it is very valuable as you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they've got simply a temporary problem, you run the risk of losing email messages as once our server receives and forwards an email, nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a backup to be saved.
