    A technique common in messaging services where a data transmission is sent from one device to a receiving device but first passes through a “message center”. The message center is typically a server that is used by the message service to store the transmitted message only until the receiving device can be located, and it then forwards the transmission to the intended recipient and deletes the message from the server.

    A common type of store-and-forward messaging is that used between mobile phones.
