Hay guys,

              This is pretty easy question, but Im an exchange n00b so I am learning all the time. But I need to redirect (which is on my exchange server) to (which is an email address outside somewhere)

I basically need a step by step instruction because i have no idea about exchange yet. SO please don't just say create a customer reciept because I don't even know how to do that :)

This shows you where to create a Custom recipient and a bit more info (half way down the page):

Create a Custom recipient for the forwarding address. Set this address as the Alternate recipient of the mailbox (mailbox property – delivery options tab)whose incoming mails have to be forwarded. Also select if the mails are to be sent to both the recipients or only the Alternate recipient.
