If you have an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choice. The sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail to the first address. Such a feature is useful if you have several sites, each with a different email address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to one email address, it will be simpler for you to monitor and never pass up a message because you have overlooked to check on a specific email. If you manage a company, you’re able to take advantage of this feature to check the e-mails received by different departments. An additional benefit is that you are able to make use of an official address for a number of needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all of the messages sent to it inside your private mailbox. In addition, you can forward email messages from a single e-mail address to multiple ones, if a number of people needs to be involved in the e-mail communication.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting package with us and you create e-mail addresses inside your account, you will be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be activated whenever you create a brand new email address or any time afterwards and deactivated just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will manage your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide whether a copy of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your end if something happens with the other email address or if it is not active for reasons unknown at the time an e-mail is forwarded. When the feature not active, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers even if the remote e-mail is working or not, so it generally is a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
