 for store and forward
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  store and forward
  message switching
      (Or "message switching") A kind of message
     passing system where a complete message is received before
     any of it is passed on to the next node.  This means that each
     message is using at most one interprocessor link at any time
     but intermediate nodes will require more storage buffers than
     under the alternative, wormhole routing.
     E-mail transmission is an example of store and forward
     message passing.
