The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an email from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they are involved, it is the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've several email addresses it is easy to forward them all to a single email address, which will make keeping track of emails less difficult and will allow you to collect emails and respond to them quickly. The feature can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting
plan with us and you create e-mail addresses in your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a few mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your choosing. The feature can be activated when you make a brand new mailbox or any time afterwards and disabled just as quickly any time you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. You will also have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is that you will always have a backup on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for whatever reason at the time a message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it might be a good idea to have it active just to be on the safe side.

This option can be activated and deactivated whenever you want and you can now also select if a copy of the inbound email messages ought to be kept on our system or not. Even though this option is not necessary, it could be far more convenient when you make the most of it, as you will get a copy of the emails when there is some issue with the remote email server. Even if there is a short-term issue and no email messages are lost on our system, you might still not get a forwarded message in case it was relayed by our servers within the downtime.
