Consolidate mailboxes and setup forwarding rules in Microsoft Exchange
Posted on 2009-07-07
Here is something I need your help out here with. I have to consolidate my mailboxes and setup some forward rules. This is how my current setup is on Exchange. I have about 20 mailboxes that basically just forward email coming to them to another external address. the way emails are forwarded is, all the mailboxes have corresponding contacts with the external email addresses. there are forwarding rules setup in outlook, that basically take every email and forward it to the corresponding contact which in turn forwards it to an external email address ( i know it sounds insane, but this setup is for a reason ). Anyway, I would like consolidate my mailboxes because the number of these kind of mailboxes are increasing causing me to purchase licenses etc and managment wants me to do something about it.
Any ideas what would be the best way to accomplish this.
