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 example, a client sends an email from their private mail box to email@example.com and as much as they're concerned, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the email may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer never intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are various purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've several emails it is easy to forward them all to a single mail box, which can make keeping track of emails simpler and allows you to get emails and respond on time. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the shared web hosting
plans, will help you to forward any email address inside the account to a different one easily. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new mailbox or any time later in case you choose that you'll need this function. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you prefer a backup of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you will avoid the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, that is temporarily unavailable. This option can be enabled and disabled whenever you want, but if you use e-mail for important matters, it is far better to use it, as no records of the e-mails are maintained on the server when the option is not active. In case you decide that you don't need forwarding any longer, it will take just a mouse click to deactivate it.
