If you have an e-mail and you enable forwarding for it, all of the incoming messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The email sender will not be aware of this and he will send the message to the initial address. This feature is effective for people with multiple Internet sites, each one with a unique email address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all emails to just a single e-mail address, it will be easier for you to keep a record and never overlook an e-mail message as you have overlooked to check on a specific e-mail address. For those who have a business, you are able to take advantage of this feature to watch the e-mails received by different departments. A further benefit is the fact that you can work with an official e-mail address for some purposes, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all of the e-mail messages sent to it inside your personal email address. In addition, you can forward messages from a single e-mail to multiple ones, if a number of individuals should be involved with the email communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared hosting packages, will let you forward any e-mail in the account to an alternative one with ease. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new email address or any time later on if you choose that you want this feature. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you prefer a copy of the messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you will prevent the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This option can be activated and deactivated at any moment, and when you use emails for critical matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the emails will be kept on the server when the option is not active. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it will take simply a click to deactivate it.
