The term email forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an email from their private mail box to email@example.com and as far as they are involved, this is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you have various e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mailbox, which will make keeping track of email messages less difficult and allows you to get emails and respond to them promptly. The function could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message delivered to a standard email address.
