Find out about e-mail forwarding, the way it works and in which scenarios it is beneficial to have it enabled.
If you have an email and you enable forwarding for it, all inbound emails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choice. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail only to the first address. This kind of feature is effective for people with several sites, each with a separate e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to just one email, it will be easier for you to keep track and not pass up an email because you have forgotten to check a given email. If you run a business, you’ll be able to employ this function to check the communication received by different divisions. A further advantage is that you're able to use an official email address for a number of needs, let’s say email@example.com, and you can get all e-mails sent to it in your personal email address. It's also possible to forward e-mails from a single email to numerous ones, in case a number of people should be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
If you have a hosting plan with us and you create e-mail addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to another address of your preference. The option can be activated whenever you create a new mailbox or any time afterwards and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will manage your account. You'll have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for reasons unknown during the time an email is forwarded. When the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system regardless of whether the remote email is operating or not, so it might be a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
