The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address which is not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they're concerned, this is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email may be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you have various e-mail addresses you can forward all of them to a sole mailbox, which can make keeping track of e-mails easier and will allow you to collect emails and respond promptly. The function could also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard email address.
