Dear All,

I am experiencing an issue with these scenarios :

Scenario 1 :

UserA = Windows Vista+Outlook 2007-> Exchange 2007
UserB = Windows XP+Outlook 2003 -> Exchange 2003

UserA is in domainA
UserB is in domain B

Both domains are on the same network.

I have setup in UserA 's outlook an "Out of Office"message + a rule "transfer email to UserB"

In this scenario UserB receive the Out of Office message but not the email from the rule.

Scenario 2

I have setup in UserB 's Outlook an "Out of Office" message + a rule "transfer email to UserA"

In this scenario UserA receive both Out of office message and the email from the rule.

Any idea why scenario 1 is not working?

Thks

Hi,

Can you check in OWA if you see the messages, also under exchange manager if you see item count increasing?

Send a normal email to the user and check the header information and check from which server it is passing. Secondly, you might missed to enable setting in Exchange 2007. Compare them

Can you enable automatic fowarding on the default remote domains configuration in Exchange 2007 and test it again.
