Benefits of using E-mail Forwarders

Corporate e-mail accounts enable you to send and receive your e-mails from a mail client such as Outlook, your phone or even a web browser based client via webmail with your custom address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


A popular addition to this is e-mail forwarding - forwarding allows you to redirect incoming e-mails from one email address to another email address. When an e-mail is forwarded to a desired e-mail address, the mail servers would automatically redirect - or forward - the incoming e-mail to your chosen address.


Some Benefits:

There are some great benefits to using e-mail forwarding instead of (or in addition to) using your actual e-mail account: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • Generic company e-mail address: Companies and organisations with more than one employee often have a generic e-mail address for enquiries, such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. It's not always necessary for this address to have an account of its own, so often e-mails like this can be automatically forwarded to the address of a company employee who can then internally distribute them to the appropriate person within the company. Netcom does this with our info account: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. address to save someone having to check another inbox - they all simply come in to an existing address within our organisation.
  • Forward mail from one address to multiple recipients: A great thing about e-mail forwarders is that the server can forward all mail sent to one e-mail forwarding address - let's say This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - to multiple recipients. In the example we have used, all mail could be forwarded to all members of the marketing team. This would mean that all e-mails sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. would then forward on to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
