Hi,

I have brand new 2003 SBS R2 with Exchange running on it. I set already all user accounts and I can send and receive email. I need to forward all the mail which is coming to one general use account (say, info@domain.com to one or more other accounts inside the same domain). I will need to have copy of original emails on original account as well. How can i do this? I just did my first steps with Exchange so I don't know anything about it, but I need to do it immediately. Need step-by-step guide. Thanks.

1. Open Active Directory and navigate to the account that you want to forward from ("info", in your example).

2. Right click on this account and select Properties.

3. Go to the Exchange General tab.

4. Click Delivery Options.

5. In the section labeled Forwarding address, click "Forward to" and then input the mailbox you want the messages forwarded to.  Select the checkbox to deliver messages to both addresses so that each mailbox receives a copy of the message.

Open Active Directory Users and Computers on the Exchange server. Right-click the user account you want the mail forwarded FROM.  Click Properties, click the Exchange General tab.  Click the Delivery Options button, then the Forward To: radio button.  Populate the box with the email address you want the messages forwarded to, and make sure the check box is checked to forward message to both mailboxes.

Wow... Good timing.  Or bad, however you see it.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

If you want it to go to several accounts, you may need to create a Distribution Group, and supply the email address of that.  I'm not sure that the input box will accept multiple email addresses, and I no longer have E2003, so I can't check.

It does not.  You will have to make a distribution group for multiple recipients.
