The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message might be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got numerous emails it is possible to forward each of them to a single mail box, which can make keeping track of email messages less complicated and allows you to get e-mails and respond to them quickly. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the website hosting packages, will help you forward any e-mail address in the account to another one with ease. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new email address or at any time later in case you choose that you require this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you prefer a copy of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you will steer clear of the possibility to lose a message if the forwarding is to an outside address, which can be temporarily inaccessible. This feature can be activated and disabled at any time, but if you use e-mail for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, as no records of the email messages are kept on the server when the option is not active. Any time you decide that you don't need forwarding any more, it will take just a click to deactivate it.
