The term email forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message can be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've got various email addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a one mail box, which can make keeping track of e-mails easier and allows you to receive e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard email address.
