The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to and as much as they're involved, this is the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email can be forwarded to, for instance, even though the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of email addresses you'll be able to forward all of them to a sole email address, which will make keeping track of emails easier and allows you to collect emails and respond to them on time. The function could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard email address.
