Forward for a short period of time

How do I have ........all........my mail forward a copy (want the original to stay on primary mail server) of all my incoming mail for a short period of time.

I'm going to another location and logging into a different companies (domain) mail server where I've just  been given an account.  I'm expectding several pieces of very important mail in the next several hours off my priar server (I can't access it from the second site)  I may want, now and in the future, to do this for hours, days, weekend, et.c

You could create a rule in outlook, but that is ugly as hell and would mean you need to leave outlook open at the office.

Configure a rule to copy all inbound mail to the remote account, tools > rules and alerts > etc...

Oh, and get a new admin :)

If you are in an exchange enviornment, just ask your admin.  It is right in the exchange tools mmc.  very easy and very basic.

Why couldn't you just use OWA?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Because my mail admin sometimes takes half the day to respond.  I need a response in 5 minutes.

We don't utilize OWA. We have RAS and a VPN.

so is there no such feature in the client ......Outlook 2007

Like most companies, I have no say in the budget for IT.  Let alone who gets picked.

Hi Treasur2,

Assuming you're the Exchange administrator for the server where your mailbox is hoste, you'll need to the following:

1) Create a contact with your forwarding email address.
2) From the Exchange server, open the "Active Directory Users and Computers" from the Exchange under "Microsoft Exchange"
3) Find your active directory account and right-click on it, go to properties, and click on "Exchange General"
4) Under "Exchange General" click "Delivery Options"
5) Under "Delivery Options", click the radio button for "Forward to:" and check the box for "Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox"
6) Enter the contact you created in step #1
7) Click OK twice to exit the properties window
8) Close the "Active Directory Users adn Computers"

Hope that helps.

Haven't we established that the asker is not the admin?

Lol, I figured you must've typed that out all by hand too :)

They are pretty clean instructions, post them somewhere and reference the link in future, save your keyboard :))

ok, so I get it.  I found a prebuilt rule in the rules list.  I'll just have to remember to turn it off when I return.

So you ended up using a rule, which is exactly what I said, but want the question deleted?
