The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mail box to email@example.com and as far as they are involved, it is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email might be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've many e-mail addresses 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 on time. The feature may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e mail message delivered to a general mail box.
