The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you have many e-mail addresses it is possible to forward all of them to a single mailbox, which can make monitoring e-mails easier and will allow you to get e-mails and respond to them quickly. The function can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mail box.
