What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In what circumstances is it really handy?
When you've got an email address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your preference. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will send the message just to the original address. This feature is useful in case you have multiple websites, each with a separate email address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to one particular email address, it will be easier for you to monitor and not pass up an email because you have forgotten to check a given email. For those who manage a business, you can take advantage of this function to watch the e-mails received by different departments. A further advantage is the fact that it is possible to use an official email address for various reasons, let’s say email@example.com, and you can now get all of the emails sent to it in your personal mailbox. You can also forward email messages from a single email address to numerous ones, if a number of people needs to be involved in the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting plan with us and you create an e-mail address in your account, you'll be able to forward it with no more than a couple of clicks to any other address of your choosing. The feature can be activated whenever you make a new email address or any time later and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. You'll have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the incoming emails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is you will always have a copy on your end if anything happens with the other email address or if it is not active for reasons unknown at the time an e-mail message is forwarded. If the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system regardless of whether the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it generally is a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.
