What is the difference between an e-mail forwarder and an e-mail auto responder?

An e-mail forwarder is a special type of e-mail account which simply forwards all e-mail sent to a particular e-mail address @yourdomain.com to a specific POP3 e-mail account. An e-mail auto responder does not have a forwarding function, but instead grabs the sender's e-mail address on all incoming e-mail and automatically responds to the e-mail with a predetermined message.
