When you've got an e-mail address and you enable forwarding for it, all of the incoming emails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choosing. The email sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail to the first address. This kind of function is useful if you have numerous sites, each with a different email address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to just a single e-mail, it will be easier for you to monitor and not overlook a message because you have overlooked to check on a particular email address. For those who manage a company, you can take advantage of this feature to observe the emails received by different divisions. An additional benefit is that you'll be able to make use of an official address for some reasons, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all of the emails sent to it inside your private email address. It's also possible to forward messages from a single email to a number of ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved with the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all the web hosting packages, will help you to forward any email address inside the account to an alternative one easily. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new email address or at any time later on in case you decide that you require this function. During the process, you will be able to consider if you need a copy of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll steer clear of the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, that's briefly unavailable. This feature can be enabled and disabled any time, but if you use e-mail for important matters, it is better to use it, since no data of the e-mails are maintained on the server if the option is not enabled. If you determine that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take simply a click to deactivate it.
