Default Email Forwarders

How exactly do they work?

Let's say we have a forwarder@domain.com going to forwarder@gmail.com.

forwarder@domain.com is displayed on a site. Person A decides to send an email to that address. Upon doing so, the message goes to forwarder@gmail.com, where it forwards to.

forwarder@gmail.com receives the message and sends back. Is the return address the gmail or the domain.com email?

Send a message via MSN to ArrizX
Default Re: Email Forwarders

That was hella confusing. But, if you received a forwareded message, you can view the origional sender, and everyone else it is going to. And if you forward one, everyone can see that it came from you, and everyone they send it too, would be able to see that it came from you, so in turn, you get forwards from everone you know, and then everyone they know, if everyone they know copies the adresses. Which happenes to me quite a bit. Although im not sure i answered what ever it is what you were asking.

Ok I get what your saying... so lets say boo@somewhere.com sends an email to fowarder@domain.com and that domains fowards the email to forwarder@gmail.com, you open the message in the gmail console or what ever and read the message and reply when you send it it will send the message back to boo@somewhere.com and they will see they fowarder@gmail.com send you an email.. theirs no point in fowardering mind as well just check the fowarder@domain.com constanly or use outlook

The return address is the "forwarder@gmail.com" account because they were the final destination.
