The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as much as they are concerned, this is actually the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to email@example.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've several emails you'll be able to forward them all to a sole email address, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and will allow you to receive emails and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature could also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a general email address.
