The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their private mail box to [email protected] and as much as they are concerned, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email may be forwarded to [email protected], for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are various reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which will make keeping track of e-mails easier and allows you to get e-mails and respond to them in a timely manner. The function can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a general mail box.
