The term email forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which is not listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are different reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've many e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a sole mail box, which can make monitoring emails less difficult and will allow you to collect e-mails and respond to them timely. The function could also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting plan with us and you set up email addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to any other address of your preference. The option can be activated whenever you set up a brand new email address or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as quickly if you change your mind. This is done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will manage your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide if a duplicate of the inbound e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if something happens with the other email address or maybe if it isn't active for some reason during the time an email is forwarded. When the feature not active, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it generally is a good idea for it to be enabled just to be prepared.
