The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got a number of emails it is easy to forward them all to a one mail box, which can make monitoring e-mails easier and allows you to collect messages and respond timely. The function could also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

In case you have a hosting plan with our company and you create an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a few mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The option can be enabled when you create a brand new email address or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage your account. You'll have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the inbound e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it isn't active for whatever reason at the time an e-mail is forwarded. If the option is not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail address is functioning or not, so it can be quite a good idea for it to be active just to be on the safe side.
