The term email forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they are concerned, it is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got numerous emails you are able to forward each of them to a one mailbox, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and allows you to collect messages and respond in a timely manner. The feature could also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a standard email address.
