This is a way to create a fake email address that if anyone sends and email address to this fake address the email system will reply immediately with a "canned" message you created. This can be useful for sending some information that has value automatically have a form submission on your website. Just carbon copy the form submission email to your autoresponder address (be sure you form submission has the form submitters email address in the from field or your autoresponse will go to your web server) and the form submitter will get the information in email instantly.

Click the above link to view a video on how to add an Email Forwarder. This is the best way to use a free email service like Google's Gmail or YaHoo mail to name a couple of many, but still have your email address be firstname.lastname@example.org. You create a new email address at your web domain, but all mail coming into the email server for that address is instantly rerouted to any other email address you want. So for example I could have a yahoo email account as email@example.com, but my new web site domain is widgets.com and I want an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. By making a forwarding rule, all mail going to email@example.com gets delivered into my firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox.
