The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to and as much as they're involved, this is the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the email might be sent to, for example, even though the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are various purposes for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of emails it is easy to forward each of them to a one email address, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and will permit you to get e-mails and respond to them promptly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard mailbox.
