The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are concerned, it is the single receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the message might be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've several email addresses it is easy to forward them all to a one mailbox, which will make checking e-mails less complicated and will allow you to get e-mails and respond to them timely. The function can also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting
package with us and you set up an e-mail address inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with no more than a few clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The option can be enabled whenever you make a new email address or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. Additionally, you will have the option to choose whether a copy of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is you will always have a copy on your server if something occurs with the other mailbox or maybe it is not active for reasons unknown during the time a message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers no matter if the remote email is operating or not, so it might be a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
