What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it function? In what instances is it extremely helpful?
When you've got an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all of the incoming emails will be sent to a third-party email address of your preference. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail only to the first address. Such a feature is useful if you have several sites, each with a unique e-mail address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all emails to just one e-mail address, it will be easier for you to monitor and not neglect an email as you have forgotten to check a particular e-mail address. In case you have a company, you’ll be able to use this function to watch the communication received by various divisions. A further benefit is that you can use an official address for various purposes, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all of the e-mail messages sent to it inside your private mailbox. It's also possible to forward e-mails from a single email address to a number of ones, if a number of individuals should be involved with the e-mail communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
plan with us and you create e-mail addresses in your account, you are able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to another e-mail address of your preference. The feature can be enabled when you set up a brand new mailbox or any time later and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide whether a backup of the incoming emails will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is you will always have a backup on your server if anything occurs with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for whatever reason during the time an email message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our system regardless of whether the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it is usually a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
