Greetings, facutvivo.

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

Cheers!

Maybe not?   I'm a rookie with Exchange, so....  Where exactly is this setting?

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.

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.

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>
