Email routing

Email routing is the process of designating an email to be a routing address to handle incoming email traffic. Email senders don’t need to know the routing address to send messages to an email account, as the address is only seen and used by the receiving mail server to point messages to a certain destination. In other words, email routing involves forwarding all incoming emails to the routing address.

Email routing makes it easy to track certain messages, and to implement automations, encryptions, and storage processes related to the routing address.
