Hi,

I am trying to setup email forwarding on our exchange 2003 server. I need it to forward mail to an external address. I followed the steps described on this page : http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Forwarding_Mail_to_an_External_Recipient_Part_II.html

But is does not work. The email is not forwarding to the external address. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I have just noticed that emails sent internally (between users in AD) is forwarding fine. But any mail from an external source does not forward. Can anyone help?

What you could do is:

-Create a mail contact which holds the external mail address.
-In the mailbox which holds the emailaddress were the email is originally sent to, add forwarding to that contact.
-Don't forget to tick that the mail should also be deliverd to the local mailbox.

Works for me.
Offcourse this is whem you want to forward mail what was sent to a particular email address.

Take a look here:
http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF015.html as I think in this case it might be more relevant to what you want to do?
Note the bit about ticking the check box to forward to both mailboxes.

I tried this but for some strange reason only internal mail is forwarding to the mailbox. External mail is not forwarding at all....

Ohhh I remembered something.
Look for something like this:
In Exchange System Manager, go to Global settings --> Internet messaging format.
Right click on Default domain --> properties --> click on  Advanced --> make sure "allow auto forward" is checked
