Email Forwarding (Email aliases)

E-mail forwarding is a service through which e-mail messages are resent from a certain account to another. Example: you have created webmaster@yourdomainname.com, info@yourdomainname.com, etc. but you would like to have all the e-mails going to one and the same e-mail box, jim@yourdomainname.com.
