facutvivo,

In the Exchange System Manager expand Global Settings and click on Internet Message Formats.  In the right-hand pane right-click on Default and select Properties.  Click on the Advanced tab.

Greetings, facutvivo.

Is Exchange set to allow message to be autoforwarded to outside addresses?

Cheers!

Thanks, I made the changes, but still not forwarding.    The rule syntax is:

When a message arrives
Where the From field contains <blank>
Subject field contains <blank>

Sent to People or Distribution List <blank>
or is Sent Only to Me <checked>

Do I need to put wildcard asterisk in here?  I'm testing using OLWA.

thanks

I'm not sure this rule is ever going to fire.  It'd be very unusual to have a message where "From" is blank, and I don't see any way it'll ever fire with "Sent to People or Distribution List" equal blank.

I want to forward all messages, so use * wildcard?  will exchange server require a reboot?

David LeeCommented:
Wildcards aren't supported in Outlook rules.  If you want this rule to fire for all messages, then change the rule to this

When a message arrives
Sent Only to Me <checked>
