ok here is a screen shot of what I am talking about.
ON EE for some reason this questin has been asked and never really answered. I am hoping that some exchange experts have joined since then. so I need for the forward field not to be greyed out how do I fix it.
Server is SBS 2003 with sp2 on the exchange.
Please do not give me any information on creating the contact as I have done that.
Also do not tell me that it has to be done on the outlook side of things. That also in not true.

Not 100% sure, but I belive you need to add somebody to the "Grant this permission to" box.

Have you tried that?

Install it
C:\program files \ win support tools \ command line
type
adsiedit.msc

Expand domain
DC
Navigate to the OU where the user is located.
Right click on username > properties.

on Attribute Editor
Edit this Attribute.
>>altRecipient<<

If the email account is not being forwarded, then the value will be
<not set>

Click Edit
and enter the path to the mailbox to which it will be forwarded.
Something like - CN=John Smith,OU=Users,OU=Company,DC=DOMAIN,DC=com (not sure how your AD is structured..)
OR YOU can copy the value using the method below.

What I'd do is:
Right click on AdsiEdit to the name of the person to who mails will get Forwarded To (John Smith).
Look for Attribute
>>Distinguished Name<<
Click Edit
Copy the Value from here.

Paste it above (CN=John Smith)

This way you can rule out typing errors.

Hope EE Takes care of this issue for you now, once and for all :)

Thanks

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
