The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the single receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got a number of email addresses you are able to forward all of them to a one mailbox, which can make monitoring e-mails easier and will permit you to get emails and respond to them promptly. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting package with us and you set up an e-mail address in your account, you are able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be activated whenever you make a new email address or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This is done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will handle your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose if a copy of the incoming e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this feature is basically that you will always have a copy on your end if something happens with the other email address or maybe if it isn't active for some reason at the time a message is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and erased from our system even if the remote email address is working or not, so it can be quite a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.
