With the email forwarding enabled for any given address, all of the incoming e-mail messages will be forwarded to a third-party address that you have selected even though the latter won't be in the list of recipients and also, the email sender will never be aware where their email will go. You can use this type of feature if you have numerous emails as it will be far easier to receive all incoming emails in one mailbox rather than signing in and out of numerous ones continuously or configuring a variety of mail boxes in an email app. In case you run a company or an organization, the e-mail forwarding is also a method to check all messages obtained by different divisions for better coordination. In addition, you can use this characteristic the other way around - a message sent to a general email address can be forwarded to multiple people.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our shared hosting plans, will let you forward any e-mail address in the account to another one without any difficulty. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or any time later on in case you choose that you need this function. During the process, you are able to consider if you need a backup of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose a message if the forwarding is to an outside address, which can be momentarily inaccessible. This feature can be enabled and deactivated whenever you want, but if you use e-mails for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, since no records of the e-mails are kept on the server if the option is not enabled. Any time you decide that you don't need forwarding anymore, it will take just a click to deactivate it.
