Redirecting the administrator email

In SBS2003, how can you redirect or copy the administrators email to an external account for monitoring purposes.
Have looked in the Outlook Web Access when logged in under administrator, but there seems to be no option for this.

Maybe there are more elegant solutions but, it is possible to set server based rules on exchange server through Outlook - Tools - Rules and Alerts.  The problem is that depending on the syntax,  they can become client based.
The rule " Apply this rule after the message arrives,  from Administrator, forward it to a@b.c" should be server based.

The monitoring e-mails can be sent to multiple accounts.  Try for example "Server Management - Monitoring and Reporting - Change alert notifications - E-mail adress" to set up a second adress (semi colon separated).

I will agree with Zadkin but only if your exchange server has been configured to send emails outside than your local network, since you asked that.


Babs,
Hope this helps.

Some emails still get send direct to admin outside of the monitoring process.  

Perhaps I should have asked, how can you redirect/forward any email account to an external one?

Maybe better, configuring through OWA is also possible, see bottom left Rules.

Do the rules apply even when logged off (i.e. are the rules applied at the server as messages come in).

Server base rules apply on server level without need of a login or client application.
