You can do this either using the "Out of Office" option from the options button on the first for, or create yourself a rule depending upon who the mail was swnt to. If it's yourself ony, just tick the "Sent only to me box" o nthe edit rule wizard.

Clarification:- You cannot use "Out of Office" to redirect mail, you will need to create a rule.

Automatic forwarding is not enabled by default on Exchange.
And I wouldn't advise enabling it.

Automatic forwards can cause email loops. This will eventually bring down your email server as the drive fills up.

If you do decide to enable automatic forwarding you have to use a rule to send the email to another email address.

The usual way to forward email to another address is to use the store and forward setting in ADUC.
Create a new mail enabled contact with the external address that you want to forward the email to.
Then open the properties of the user account in ADUC on the Exchange server. Click on the tab Exchange General, then Delivery and options and set the forward. Once done you can then hide the contact from the GAL.
