The term email forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as much as they're involved, it is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email could be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer never meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many e-mail addresses you can forward all of them to a single email address, which will make checking email messages less complicated and will permit you to get e-mails and respond to them quickly. The feature could also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the shared web hosting
plans, will let you forward any email in the account to a second one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or at any time afterwards in case you decide that you will need this feature. During the process, you are able to choose if you prefer a backup of the email messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you will prevent the possibility to lose a message if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which can be temporarily unavailable. This option can be enabled and disabled at any time, and when you use e-mails for crucial matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the email messages will be kept on the server when the option is not active. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it will take simply a mouse click to disable it.
