When you've got an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all incoming emails will be sent to a third-party email address that you choose. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail just to the original address. Such a feature is useful if you have a number of web sites, each one with a unique email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all messages to one e-mail, it will be simpler for you to keep track and never overlook a message because you have forgotten to check a certain email address. For those who have a company, you can employ this function to check the e-mails received by various departments. A further advantage is that you're able to make use of an official address for some purposes, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all messages sent to it in your personal email address. You can also forward e-mail messages from one email address to numerous ones, in case a number of individuals should be involved with the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of the hosting plans, will help you to forward any e-mail address in the account to a second one easily. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or any time later on if you choose that you will need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a duplicate of the emails to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an outside address, which is briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and deactivated at any time, and if you use e-mail for crucial matters, it is advisable to use it, since no data of the emails will be kept on the server if the option is not active. In case you determine that you don't need forwarding anymore, it will take only a click to deactivate it.
