The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message might be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are several reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of emails it is possible to forward all of them to a sole mail box, which can make checking email messages simpler and will allow you to get emails and respond timely. The function may also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting package with our company and you set up an email address inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to another e-mail address of your choosing. The option can be activated when you create a new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as quickly if you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose if a copy of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is you will always have a copy on your end if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe it's not active for some reason at the time an e-mail message is forwarded. If the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our system no matter if the remote email is functioning or not, so it generally is a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
