What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In what occasions is it really useful?
The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an e-mail from their private mail box to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email could be sent to email@example.com, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got various e-mail addresses it is possible to forward all of them to a single email address, which will make monitoring email messages less difficult and allows you to receive messages and respond to them timely. The feature may also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an email message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting package with us and you set up an email address inside your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a few clicks to another address of your preference. The feature can be activated whenever you set up a new email address or any time later and disabled just as quickly any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can manage your account. You will also have the option to decide if a duplicate of the inbound messages will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is basically that you will always have a copy on your end if something occurs with the other mailbox or maybe it's not active for whatever reason at the time an email message is forwarded. If the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our system even if the remote email is functioning or not, so it can be quite a good idea to have it enabled just to be prepared.
