- Forward: Take email destined for recipient A and forward it
to recipient B instead of (or sometimes in addition to)
delivering it to A's mailbox.
- Relay: Route mail addressed to one or more recipients to a
a suitable gateway responsible for handling mail to those
Forwarding is generally done via address rewriting, while relaying
is done via transport/nexthop selection.
