When you've got an email address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound emails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your preference. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will send the e-mail only to the original address. This kind of feature is useful in case you have multiple sites, each with a different email for contact, for example. By forwarding all messages to one particular email, it will be easier for you to monitor and not neglect an e-mail message as you have neglected to check on a certain e-mail address. For those who run a company, you can employ this feature to monitor the e-mails received by different divisions. An additional advantage is that you're able to make use of an official address for some needs, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all of the e-mails sent to it in your private mailbox. In addition, you can forward e-mail messages from a single email address to multiple ones, if a number of people should be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the shared website hosting packages, will allow you to forward any e-mail in the account to an alternative one without difficulty. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or at any time later in case you decide that you want this function. During the process, you will be able to consider if you need a copy of the messages to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's momentarily unavailable. This option can be enabled and deactivated any time, and when you use email messages for important matters, it is better to use it, as no records of the emails are kept on the server if the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding any more, it takes only a click to disable it.
