What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In what situations is it particularly handy?
If you have an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the inbound emails will be sent to a third-party email address that you pick. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will send the message just to the first address. Such a function is effective if you have a number of Internet sites, each with a separate e-mail for contact, for instance. By forwarding all emails to a single e-mail address, it will be easier for you to keep track and not overlook a message because you have neglected to check a given e-mail address. If you manage a business, you’re able to take advantage of this feature to keep track of the communication received by various divisions. An additional advantage is that you'll be able to make use of an official address for some needs, let’s say email@example.com, and you can get all messages sent to it in your personal mailbox. You can also forward email messages from a single email address to multiple ones, in case a number of people should be involved with the email communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of the shared hosting packages, will help you to forward any e-mail address in the account to a second one easily. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new mailbox or at any time afterwards in case you decide that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you need a copy of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will 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 is briefly unavailable. This feature can be enabled and deactivated any time, though if you use email messages for critical matters, it is far better to use it, as no records of the email messages will be maintained on the server if the option is not active. Any time you determine that you don't need forwarding any more, it will take simply a mouse click to disable it.
