The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to [email protected] and as far as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the message may be forwarded to [email protected], for instance, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are several purposes for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've got many emails you can forward them all to a single mail box, which can make checking e-mails less difficult and allows you to receive e-mails and respond to them on time. The feature can also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message sent to a general email address.
