Incoming mail redirect to public folder

I am trying to have all mail going to a generic mailbox redirected to a public folder. What I did was create a server based rule in the generic mailbox account that would move all incoming mail to a specific public folder.

The problem is that it doesnt redirect the mail unless someone logs into the generic mailbox account and then the rule runs.

Has anyone seen this before? Shouldn't the rule run automatically if the rule is server based?

    Your best bet would be to go into ADUC and set it to forward all email.

    Go to ADUC, user properties, Exchange General, Delivery options, then select forward to:.  you can have all email forwarded, or deliver to both locations.

    Is the client only box ticked in the rule itself?

    Could also try setting this up from inside OWA...
