When you've got an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the incoming messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox that you choose. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will send the e-mail only to the original address. Such a feature is useful if you have multiple sites, each with a different email for contact, for instance. By forwarding all messages to one particular email, it will be easier for you to monitor and not overlook an email because you have overlooked to check on a certain e-mail address. For those who manage a business, you’ll be able to employ this function to watch the emails received by different departments. Another advantage is that you'll be able to make use of an official e-mail address for a number of purposes, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all e-mails sent to it inside your private mailbox. You can also forward messages from one email to multiple ones, if a number of people needs to be involved with the email communication.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the cloud hosting packages, will allow you to forward any e-mail in the account to a second one without any difficulty. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards in case you decide that you will need this function. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you need a backup of the emails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you will avoid the possibility to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an outside address, that is briefly inaccessible. This option can be activated and deactivated whenever you want, but if you use emails for critical matters, it is far better to use it, as no records of the email messages are kept on the server if the option is not enabled. If you decide that you don't need forwarding any more, it will take a click to disable it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server through our company, you'll need only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mails created on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are sent. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also decide if a backup of the messages should be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this feature isn't a requirement, it is quite valuable as you will get a backup of the messages on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they have just a short-term problem, you run the risk of losing emails as once our system gets and forwards a message, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
