Outlook 2007 Rules won't autoforward to external email address

Posted on 2009-02-23

Taking from the previous case:

I realize you can enable the exchange server to allow the client(outlook 2007) to autoforward to an external email address. By doing the following: ESM, Global Settings, Internet Message Formats. Right click on the Default and choose Properties. Choose the tab "Advanced" and then select the options as required. Apply/OK out.

Another method is to forward to an email enabled user in AD...of which I'd rather not do bcz I'd prefer to use rules.

As for the first method--the exchange side...Is there any way to limit who has rights to do that? Or is it an all or nothing?

Thanks much.

    Automatic forwarding to internet email addresses is disabled in exchange by default and also not recommended unless it is highly required. This may cause mail looping problems. Also, If you are an exchange full admin then you can modify the global settings otherwise not.

    The only way to do it is to have it configured on Global Settings and nowhere else. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Bummed it is a global setting. Would be nice to set differently. I will probably need to find an alternate way of addressing this issue-bcz, as you and others have stated-I don't want to cause looping problems.
