Find out about e-mail forwarding, the way it works as well as in which circumstances it is useful to have it enabled.
The term e-mail forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they're involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to email@example.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you have many e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a one email address, which will make monitoring email messages simpler and will allow you to get messages and respond quickly. The feature may also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an email message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting package with us and you set up e-mail addresses inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a few clicks to any other e-mail address of your preference. The feature can be enabled whenever you create a new email address or at any time afterwards and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will control your account. You'll have the option to decide if a backup of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this feature is you will always have a copy on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or if perhaps it is not active for reasons unknown at the time a message is forwarded. When the feature not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our system no matter if the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it might be a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.
