SBS 2008 Forwaing Emails to an External Email Address

Hello, I have been trying to go through some previous answers to this question and for whatever reason it has not been working for me.

Can someone please give me step-by-step instructions to forward emails for one user to an external email address. Novice instructions please.

Thank you.

Hang on one minute - in the previous question, that i answered, you were asking how to do this in SBS2003, now you're asking how to do it in SBS2008 - the process is different on each, the answer to your last question applies to 2003, the article linked above, or RickEpnet's answer applies to 2008 - Check which you're actually running ;)
