The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to 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 much as they are involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message might be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of email addresses it is possible to forward each of them to a sole mail box, which will make monitoring emails less complicated and will allow you to collect emails and respond to them timely. The function can also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
It is really simple to set up forwarding for virtually every e-mail created in a hosting
account with us. You can do this either when you set up a new email address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time in the future because the forwarding may be activated and deactivated for any active email address with a few clicks. You can also choose if a backup copy of the inbound messages will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty useful option. This will be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not available for whatever cause, not mentioning that you'll also have a backup of all your e-mails. If this feature is not activated for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will stay on our server. In case the remote email address is inaccessible for the moment, you will simply lose this email.
