The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are several purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got several email addresses you are able to forward them all to a single email address, which can make checking e-mails easier and will permit you to receive messages and respond to them promptly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mail box.
