The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that is not listed as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as much as they are concerned, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to email@example.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the e-mail 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've many email addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mail box, which will make keeping track of email messages less complicated and allows you to receive messages and respond to them on time. The function could also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard email address.
