The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not listed as a receiver. For example, a client sends an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are concerned, this is the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got many e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a one mailbox, which will make checking e-mails less difficult and will permit you to receive messages and respond to them timely. The function may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the cloud website hosting packages, will let you forward any email address inside the account to an alternative one without any difficulty. This can be done either during the creation of a brand new email address or at any time later on in case you choose that you require this function. During the process, you are able to consider if you need a copy of the messages to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled at any time, but if you use e-mails for important matters, it is best to use it, since no data of the emails will be maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it takes only a click to deactivate it.
