The term email forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email can be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have several email addresses you can forward all of them to a one mailbox, which can make checking e-mails simpler and will permit you to collect messages and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general mailbox.

The option can be activated whenever you set up a new email address or whenever you want later on and deactivated just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will handle your account. You'll have the option to decide if a copy of the inbound e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is that you will always have a copy on your server if something occurs with the other email address or if it is not active for some reason at the time a message is forwarded. In case the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote email is working or not, so it is actually a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be prepared.

Even when there is a temporary issue and no email messages are lost on our system, you might still not receive a forwarded email if it was relayed by our servers throughout the downtime.
