The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many e-mail addresses you're able to forward each of them to a single mailbox, which will make checking e-mails easier and allows you to collect messages and respond to them in a timely manner. The function may also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all the cloud hosting packages, will help you forward any email in the account to another one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards if you decide that you require this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you need a copy of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's temporarily unavailable. This option can be enabled and disabled any time, and if you use e-mail for important matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the email messages will be kept on the server in case the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes simply a click to deactivate it.
