The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are several purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got several email addresses you are able to forward them all to a single email address, which can make checking e-mails easier and will permit you to receive messages and respond to them promptly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud hosting packages, will allow you to forward any email address inside the account to a different one without any difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or at any time afterwards if you choose that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a backup of the e-mails to be kept on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you'll steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This feature can be enabled and disabled at any time, though if you use e-mails for crucial matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the emails are maintained on the server if the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it takes simply a click to disable it.
