The term email forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they're involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've various e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which will make monitoring email messages simpler and will allow you to receive emails and respond to them quickly. The function may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard email address.
