When you've got an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound emails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choice. The email sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the message just to the first address. This kind of feature is useful if you have multiple websites, each with a unique e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to just one e-mail, it will be easier for you to keep track and never neglect an e-mail message because you have forgotten to check a given e-mail. In case you run an enterprise, you are able to use this function to keep track of the e-mails received by various departments. An additional benefit is that you'll be able to make use of an official address for various reasons, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all e-mails sent to it in your personal mailbox. In addition, you can forward emails from one email to a number of ones, in case a number of people needs to be involved in the e-mail conversation.
