Mail gateway

A machine that connects two or more electronic mail systems (including dissimilar mail systems) and transfers messages between them. Sometimes the mapping and translation can be quite complex, and it generally requires a store and forward scheme whereby the message is received from one system completely before it is transmitted to the next system, after suitable translations.
