I've created a seperate ad account for myself with my gmail address in the email address tab.  I've then gone into Exchange 2007 console and onto my main account, and told it to forward all my emails to the new ad account I made.

Groupshield show's that it's forward the messages, but they don't appear.

Can anyone help please?
Thanks

That is not how you forward email.
You have to create a Mail Enabled Contact and then set the forward on your original account to use the Contact. Do not create another full account.

So create a new contact through the exchange console instead?  New Mailbox/New User?
