The term e-mail forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are involved, it is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many email addresses you're able to forward each of them to a single mailbox, which will make keeping track of emails simpler and allows you to receive e-mails and respond to them quickly. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
It is simple to set up forwarding for every e-mail created inside a shared web hosting account with us. You can do this either when you set up a new e-mail address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want afterwards since the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for every existing email address with just a few clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, a pretty useful option. This can be a fail-safe if the remote mailbox is not available for some cause, not mentioning you will have always a backup of all your messages. If this option is not enabled for a given email address on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote email address is unavailable for the moment, you'll lose this email.
