The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they're involved, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message might be forwarded to email@example.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are numerous purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many email addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a single mailbox, which can make keeping track of email messages less complicated and allows you to collect e-mails and respond to them on time. The feature could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message delivered to a general mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our hosting plans, will let you forward any email address in the account to a different one without difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards in case you decide that you require this function. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you want a backup of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you will prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This feature can be activated and deactivated any time, though if you use e-mails for essential matters, it is better to use it, because no records of the e-mails will be maintained on the server if the option is not active. Any time you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it will take just a click to disable it.
