What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In which circumstances is it extremely useful?
When you've got an email address and you enable forwarding for it, all of the incoming emails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the message just to the original address. Such a function is useful for people with a number of websites, each one with a separate email for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to one particular email address, it will be easier for you to monitor and not miss a message as you have overlooked to check on a particular e-mail. For those who manage an enterprise, you’re able to use this feature to observe the emails received by various divisions. An additional benefit is the fact that it is possible to work with an official address for some needs, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all e-mail messages sent to it inside your private mailbox. It's also possible to forward e-mail messages from one email address to numerous ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved in the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting
It is very easy to configure forwarding for every e-mail address configured inside a web hosting account with us. This can be accomplished either while you create a new e-mail address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or any time in the future since the forwarding can be activated and disabled for any current mailbox with just a couple of clicks. It is also possible to decide if a copy of the incoming e-mails will be kept on our servers, a very practical feature. This can be a fail-safe whenever the remote mailbox is not accessible for some cause, not mentioning you will always have a backup of all messages. If this feature is not enabled for a given email on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on our server. When the remote email address is down for the moment, you'll lose this message.
