In outlook, I believe this can be done by setting up a rule on receipt to forward to somone in your contacts. You can also setup forwarding via Acitive Directory, go to the user account, Exchange General tab, Delivery Options, forwarding address and set it to forward to whom you want. Doing this, you also have the option to forward and leave a copy in the original mailbox or not. Hope this was what you were asking about. Thanks

with the rules(outlook based) , would the option to leave and also forward available?

for this, does the user need permissions, or any outlook user can do it?

With rules, you can forward and/or delete. Just depends on the options you select while creating the rule. Some rules require outlook to stay open and will usually tell you if it is server based or outlook b ased. If that is a problem, do it via AD and outlook being open doesn't matter.

Only the user of the account can setup rules for their account. They just go into their outlook to create the rule. Other users cannot create the rule for them from their outlook.

It would be a server side rule, to forward a copy upon reciept.....

Dont need the Copy To Inbox though, as thats where it already is......

If you have access to Active Directory and the accounts are in AD, see my original post about doing the forwarding there, may be the easiest. Thanks

"for outlook based rule to forward, does outlook need to be open all the time?"

Yes, this is why Server Side would be ideal. If you need to do it in Outlook client side, youd have to have the user logged on and Outlook running.... Server Side rules are much more efficient...
