In Active Directory users and computers create a contact and then mail enable it right click exchange tasks mail enable  and assignt to it the external email address

then go to the user properties in ADUC delivery options and forward his mailbox to the just created contact, you can check "deliver to both" checkbox if needed

the auto forward rule in outlook would also require you to enable this within system manager delivery options

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

The less obvious way is to create a rule on the client side (using Outlook) to forward EVERY email that comes in to be redirected or forwarded to the external email account.

outlook side rules will show the email actually as FW:.....

the one on the exchange side will just send the email as it is received
