Email forwarding can set up an inbox that receives incoming communication and then sends it out to a different email address automatically.  A major benefit of email forwarding is that you can send them all to one location for easier reading and organization if you have multiple addresses for your business.

In cPanel, you're able to create two different types of forwarding: Account Forwarders and Domain Forwarders.  Account Forwarders act individually per email account and need to be set up one by one.  Domain Forwarders revolve around the domain address and send many emails to that domain on to another one.

Note: Domain forwarders override individual account forwarding.
