The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as far as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message might be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer never meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've got numerous emails you'll be able to forward them all to a sole email address, which will make keeping track of emails less complicated and will allow you to collect emails and respond to them timely. The feature may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e mail message delivered to a standard mailbox.
