With an email forwarding enabled for any given address, all incoming messages will be sent to a third-party e-mail address which you have picked even though the latter will not be in the list of recipients and also, the sender will never be informed where their email goes. You can use this type of function in case you have a number of email addresses because it will likely be far easier to receive all incoming messages in just a single mailbox rather than logging in and out of numerous ones all the time or configuring a variety of mail boxes within an email app. In case you have a business as well as an organization, the email forwarding is a way to check out all e-mails obtained by numerous divisions for better coordination. You could also make use of this function the other way round - an e-mail sent to a general email address can be forwarded to multiple people.

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take you only a few clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails configured on our server to a third-party address. In the exact same section you will additionally be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are sent. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may also choose if a copy of the messages should be kept on our servers or not. Even though this feature isn't a requirement, it is quite valuable since you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got a short-term problem, you risk losing emails as the moment our server receives and forwards a message, nothing at all will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
