Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

1. Go into Active Directory Users and Computers
2. Right Click on the Users container and click New\Contact
3. Fill in the requested information on the first page, (name and display etc..) then click next
4. The next page you will need to click the modify button, and specify SMTP address, then click OK
5. Enter the external email address you want the emails to be forwarded to, then click OK, then click Next, and finally click Finish

Then:
1. Double click on the user's account
2. Switch to the Exchange General Tab
3. Click on Delivery options
4. In the middle of the dialog box, click the "Forward to:" button, then click the modify button
5. Browse to the contact that you created earlier, select it and click okay
6. Then check the box for "Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox"

This will deliver the message to the mailbox on the Exchange server, and forward a copy to the external account.
