With the email forwarding activated for any given address, all incoming e-mail messages will be forwarded to a third-party address that you have picked although the latter won't be in the list of recipients and the sender won't be aware where their e-mail will go. You can use this type of function if you have multiple emails since it will likely be more convenient to get all of the incoming emails in just a single mailbox as an alternative to signing in and out of different ones continuously or setting up a number of mail boxes within an e-mail app. If you manage a company or perhaps an organization, the email forwarding is a way to check all e-mails received by various departments for better coordination. It's also possible to make use of this function the other way round - an e-mail sent to a general email address can be sent to multiple people.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting package with us and you set up email addresses inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your preference. The option can be activated when you set up a brand new email address or any time afterwards and disabled just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming e-mails 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 mailbox or if it is not active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. When the option is not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail is working or not, so it generally is a wise decision 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 from us, you will need simply a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails configured on our server to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are sent. It is possible to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may also decide whether a backup of the messages should be kept on our servers or not. Although this feature is not a requirement, it's valuable because you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end just in case that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they've got simply a temporary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as once our server gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be kept.
