I am trying to forward Exchange email to a Gmail account.  I understand that I need to create a new contact and make the SMTP for that the gmail address.  However, when creating the contact, the Create an Exchange Email address box is greyed out.  Please help.

Thank you

I dont have a Contact OU but I created one just to see if it changes anything.  The "Create and Exchange Email" is still greyed out when making a new contact.

I realized that I just needed to log off and log back in to allow the new permissions Iw as given to take affect.
