Email Forwarding & Tools
Email forwarding and auto responders are useful features and tools for managing your email and web site. Email forwarding and auto responders make checking your email address and responding to email much more simple. While you generally want to find a web host that offers these email extras, they aren't exactly necessary features for managing your email or getting your web site on the Internet.
What is Email Forwarding?
Email forwarding is just like receiving mail at an old address and the mailman forwards it on to your new mailbox. You can set up email from email@example.com to go directly to your firstname.lastname@example.org account. This way you only have to check one email account (mailbox) to receive all your mail.
What are Auto Responders?
Auto responders are a great tool for providing your customers with instant feedback. When customers send you an email, you can set up an auto responder to send them an automatic email message saying "Thanks for your email."
What is Email Alias?
Email alias allow you to set up many different emails to be sent to a POP email account. Maybe you want an address for email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, but you will be checking email for both support and marketing. An email alias allows you to use multiple email addresses to be sent to an individual POP email account.
