The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are concerned, it is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've numerous emails you're able to forward them all to a one mailbox, which will make monitoring e-mails simpler and will allow you to get emails and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature can also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mail box.
