Discover more about e-mail forwarding, the way it operates as well as in which cases it is useful to have it enabled.
With an email forwarding enabled for a specific address, all of the inbound messages will be sent to a third-party e-mail address which you have selected although the latter will not be in the list of recipients and the email sender will never be informed where their message will go. You can use this type of feature if you have multiple emails as it will likely be easier to receive all incoming e-mails in one email address rather than logging in and out of various ones all the time or setting up a number of mail boxes within an email application. In case you manage a business or maybe an organization, the email forwarding is a solution to check all messages obtained by numerous departments for better coordination. It's also possible to make use of this function the opposite way round - an email sent to a general email address can be sent to several people.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the shared web hosting packages, will help you to forward any e-mail in the account to a second one easily. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new email address or any time afterwards if you decide that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a backup of the messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an outside address, which can be briefly inaccessible. This feature can be activated and disabled at any moment, and when you use e-mails for important matters, it is best to use it, as no records of the emails are maintained on the server when the option is not active. In case you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes only a click to deactivate it.
