The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they are concerned, it is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are several reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got many e-mail addresses you can forward all of them to a one email address, which can make keeping track of email messages less complicated and allows you to receive emails and respond promptly. The feature may also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the hosting plans, will help you forward any email address in the account to an alternative one with ease. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or any time afterwards in case you choose that you want this function. During the process, you will be able to choose if you need a backup of the emails to be maintained on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose a message if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and deactivated any time, but if you use e-mails for essential matters, it is far better to use it, because no data of the e-mails are kept on the server in case the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you don't need forwarding any longer, it will take only a click to disable it.
