If you have an email and you activate forwarding for it, all of the incoming messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your preference. The sender won't be aware of this and he will send the message only to the first address. This kind of feature is effective if you have numerous websites, each one with a unique e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to a single email, it will be easier for you to keep track and not overlook an email as you have neglected to check a specific e-mail address. In case you run a company, you can take advantage of this feature to monitor the communication received by various departments. A further advantage is the fact that you can make use of an official email address for a number of needs, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all of the e-mail messages sent to it in your personal email address. It's also possible to forward e-mail messages from a single email to a number of ones, if a number of individuals should be involved in the e-mail conversation.
