Find out more about e-mail forwarding, what it does as well as in which scenarios it is beneficial to have it activated.
If you have an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the inbound messages will be sent to a third-party email address of your preference. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will send the email just to the first address. This kind of feature is useful for people with a number of websites, each one with a separate email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to one email, it will be easier for you to keep track and not miss a message because you have overlooked to check a specific email. If you manage a company, you’re able to take advantage of this feature to keep track of the communication received by various departments. An additional advantage is the fact that you're able to work with an official address for various reasons, let’s say email@example.com, and you can get all of the e-mails sent to it inside your private email address. You can also forward emails from a single e-mail to numerous ones, if a number of individuals should be involved in the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all our shared hosting
packages, will help you forward any email address inside the account to a different one effortlessly. This can be done either during the creation of a new email address or at any time later on in case you choose that you'll need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you prefer a backup of the emails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll avoid the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an external address, that's briefly unavailable. This feature can be activated and deactivated whenever you want, and if you use e-mail for critical matters, it is far better to use it, because no data of the emails are kept on the server if the option is not enabled. Any time you determine that you don't need forwarding any more, it takes a click to deactivate it.
