Hi
I am using MS SBS 2003 in two different sites, both with Exchange 2003.

i have created a mailbox at each site eg

steve@site1.com & steve@site2.com

and at "Site 1" i have also created a Contact with the "site 2" address, in the delivery options of site 1 i have set up a forward to the contact.  However, when i send and it tries to forward it on i get this return email:

Reporting-MTA: dns;server.lan.local
Received-From-MTA: dns;site1.com
Arrival-Date: Wed, 21 Jun 2006 10:56:22 +0100

Final-Recipient: rfc822;steve@site2.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.5.0
Diagnostic-Code: smtp;550 <steve.dews@test.co.uk>... Not permitted
X-Display-Name: stevecontact

Any ideas?

Forwarding via contacts on the actual mailbox are not affected by the forwarding and reply options in Global Settings.

Does the user need a mailbox at the second site - where you are forwarding the email message from? If not, then drop it and simply use the contact instead. If you add the local domain to the contact, so that the contact has two email addresses (user@domain1.com and user@domain2.com) then Exchange will accept email for the domain and immediately send it back out to the Internet to be delivered to the external address.
