The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that is not 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 involved, this is actually the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many emails you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mail box, which can make monitoring e-mails less difficult and allows you to get emails and respond promptly. The function may also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the website hosting packages, will let you forward any e-mail in the account to a second one effortlessly. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or any time later if you decide that you'll need this feature. During the process, you are able to choose if you want a copy of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you'll steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an outside address, which can be momentarily inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled at any moment, and when you use e-mail for important matters, it is advisable to use it, because no records of the e-mails are maintained on the server when the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it will take just a mouse click to deactivate it.
