"Store and forward" is a phrase used in many networking technologies. Packets are stored and forwarded through routers, as discussed under "Routers" and "Routing." Network applications use store-and-forward messaging when real-time connections are not essential, as discussed under "MOM (Message-Oriented Middleware)." Finally, electronic mail systems use store-and-forward techniques to move e-mail from one user to another across messaging servers, as discussed under "Electronic Mail."
