The term email forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to [email protected] and as far as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email can be forwarded to [email protected], for instance, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've many e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mail box, which will make checking email messages easier and will allow you to get e-mails and respond quickly. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard mail box.
