When you've got an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the inbound emails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choosing. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the message to the first address. This type of feature is useful in case you have several sites, each one with a different e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all messages to one email address, it will be easier for you to keep a record and not overlook a message because you have neglected to check on a certain email address. For those who run an enterprise, you’ll be able to employ this function to watch the emails received by different departments. A further benefit is the fact that you can make use of an official e-mail address for a number of needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all of the e-mails sent to it inside your private mailbox. It's also possible to forward email messages from a single e-mail to numerous ones, if a number of people should be involved with the email communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the cloud hosting plans, will allow you to forward any email in the account to another one with ease. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or any time later in case you choose that you will need this function. During the process, you are able to consider if you want a duplicate of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled at any time, and if you use e-mail for crucial matters, it is best to use it, as no records of the email messages are kept on the server when the option is not enabled. If you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes just a click to deactivate it.
