Forward is an option found in an e-mail client, which allows you to forward a received e-mail to another recipient. The e-mail will be sent with the body of the e-mail showing as "quoted text". Recipients of a forwarded e-mail can usually tell the e-mail is a forward. Some clients will place the letters "FWD" in front of the Subject field.
