Find out more about e-mail forwarding, how it works as well as in which instances it is useful to have it activated.
The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as much as they are concerned, this is the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've a number of email addresses you're able to forward them all to a one email address, which will make monitoring e-mails less complicated and will permit you to receive emails and respond to them quickly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general mail box.
