Hi,  I am looking for the name of the AD attribute(s) that holds the mail forwarding address should a mail account have forwarding enabled.  When I search the active directory for a user that has forwarding configured the attribute does not appear to be part of the user object class as I would expect.

cheers

Hi RichyNZ,

I think what you're looking for is ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address

Full details are at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wss/wss/wss_ldf_attributeSchema_ms_Exch_Forwarding_Address.asp

Does that help?

Thanks.  Yes I had found this one prior to my post but could not it in the AD.  If I search (CN=ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address) at the root level with subtree selected no results are returned?

Looking at the schema this attribute does not seem to exist?  Any ideas if it has been changed with 2003

Hmm... the equivalent document for Exchange 2003 is :

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/e2k3/e2k3/e2k3_ldf_diff_ADSCATTRIBUTE_Introduction.asp is the list of attributes created by

That doesn't include the ms-Exch-Forwarding-Address attribute.
Seems a little unusual to me.

Sorry I couldn't find anything more useful....

Richy,

Are you talking about when you go into ADUC, select Exchange General, Delivery Options, Forward To? Is that the attribute you're looking for?

I told a lie, It is in the schema.  However I have found the following 'altRecipient:' seems to be what is used when the forwarding option is used.
