Create a Forwarding E-mail Address

Learn how to create an e-mail address that will forward all incoming mail to another e-mail address.

A forwarding e-mail address can also be thought of as an e-mail alias, since the forwarding e-mail account will not actually recieve the mail itself, but forward it to another address. The forwarding e-mail account will really just be another name for receiving e-mail at an existing e-mail address.
