All,


 


Vaguely recall that it’s possilbe to forward a domain user’s email to an external address… but can’t remember the detail.


 


Trying to automatically forward email sent to user@sbsdomain.com on Exchange 2003 to user’sotheremail@someisp.com.


 


Would appreciate any help.


 


much thanx, Joem

Joem,


 


Create a “Contact” in Active Directory.  Assign it an SMTP address of UsersOtherEmail@SomeISP.com.


 


Then go into the Exchange General tab of the AD user’s properties.


Select “Delivery Options” and configure the account to forward messages to the newly-created Contact.  [Note that it may take some time for Recipient Update Service to make the Contact’s address visible unless you force the change manually.]


 


You’ll have the option to save a local copy if you want.  And finally, you can then hide the Contact from the Global Address Book so that other users don’t see it in their address lists.  [Do that from the Exchange Advanced tab of the Contact’s properties.]


 


Yours,


Brad Dinerman

Here’s the KB article for reference.  It has the same steps Brad mentioned with the exception of hiding the contact.
