When you've got an email and you enable forwarding for it, all incoming emails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your preference. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will send the e-mail only to the original address. This kind of feature is useful in case you have several web sites, each with a different e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to one email, it will be easier for you to monitor and never overlook a message because you have forgotten to check on a particular e-mail. In case you run a business, you’re able to take advantage of this function to check the e-mails received by different departments. A further advantage is the fact that you are able to make use of an official e-mail address for some needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all e-mails sent to it inside your private mailbox. You can also forward e-mail messages from one email to a number of ones, in case a number of individuals should be involved in the email conversation.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting plan with us and you set up email addresses in your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your preference. The feature can be activated whenever you create a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as quickly any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can handle your account. You will also have the option to decide whether a backup of the inbound emails will stay on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is basically that you will always have a copy on your end if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an email is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail is working or not, so it is actually a good idea for it to be enabled just to be prepared.
