Exchange 2003 Forward Internet Address

I need to create an internal contact that uses our @domain email address in ADUC and have all email sent to that address forwarded to an external internet address on our SBS 2003 server.

I found some instructions here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_265-Forward-Email-to-External-Email-Address-Exchange-2003.html

I'm having a bit of an issue, however. After I create a contact, I don't see this: http://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/2008/11_w47/80270/del-rest.jpg

I see the screen attached to this post instead. Where am I going wrong?

You should do the following:
1. Create an account on your domain with the email that you want to receive emails as: sales account with email: sales@yourdomain.com
2. create a contact with the external email address that you want to forward email to: Albert Smith email address asmith@yahoo.com.
3. Then on the go to the sales account's properties in AD and go to the exchange general tab and forward email to the contact.

all you need to do is create a contact in AD, like you already did. then go to the account that is using outlook and create a rule to forward a copy of all emails to, and open the GAL and select the external contact.

So I actually have to create an account AND a contact, not just a contact? I don't suppose there is a way to set up a forward without creating an account in AD?

yes since the contact is actually and external email address. so you would receive the email as sales@yourdomain.com, then in that account setup the forwarding to the external contact. lets say your external contact is sales@yahoo.com. no one can send that account an email as it would go to Yahoo not your company. sales@yourdomain.com would forward all emails to the sales@yahoo.com email address
