The term e-mail forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address which is not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've various e-mail addresses you're able to forward each of them to a single mailbox, which can make monitoring email messages less complicated and will allow you to collect emails and respond to them on time. The feature can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general mailbox.

The feature can be enabled whenever you make a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later on and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will manage your account. You'll have the option to decide whether a backup of the inbound messages will stay on our servers or not.
