I am trying to auto forward any message sent to a specific account to 3 e-mail addresses one of which is external. I am using Exchange 2003 SP2. I have tried creating a group with the addresses I would like to forward to then adding that group to the forwarding address in Delivery options but that feature doesn't allow a group to be added.

Does anyone have any idea on how to do this?

THANKS!!!

Dear bornhusker,
Create the external id as contact and create the DL in which add two of your internal address Plus the contact your have created.
Now you check the forward. It should work

To create the Contact refer this article http://www.amset.info/exchange/contacts.asp

Cheers!

I could be wrong but I think what you've described is what I've already done.
When using the forwarding address option in ADUC user account properties > Exchange General Tab > Delivery Options I am not able to select any type of group (I only see users to select). When I try to add more than one account I receive an error. Because of this I can only send to one address using this feature.

Is there a different feature that I can use or am I missing something?

Thanks for your assistance!!

Open Active Directory Users & Computers and create a a new group (make it a distribution group),
add users to the group (which includes the contact you have created who have external mail id),
then in the delivery options, forward mail to the distribution group you just created.

The D/L wasn't showing as an option because I did not create it as a mail enabled group. Also, I had to add the contact to the group through the contact object as I was not able to add it through the group object.

Thanks for your assistance!!
