The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message may be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've got many emails you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole email address, which will make keeping track of emails easier and will allow you to get messages and respond timely. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message delivered to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting plan with us and you set up e-mail addresses inside your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a few mouse clicks to another address of your choosing. The feature can be enabled when you make a new email address or at any time afterwards and deactivated just as quickly in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can handle your account. You'll have the option to decide whether a copy of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for some reason during the time an e-mail is forwarded. In case the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our system even if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it might be a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.
