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.

Open Exchange Management Console

Expand the tree Microsoft Exchange then expand Recipient Configuration then click on Mail Contact. Click on New Mail Contact on the right hand side.

Click Next Fill in the form. Then click on Edit under External Email Address, put in the external email address here. Finish the wizard.

Then under Recipient Configuration again click on Mailbox then double click the user you want to have forwarded to the external address. Click the Mail Flow Settings tab and click Delivery options.

Click the check box Forward to and select the newly created contact. You can also check the box to have meial Delivered to both addresses.

That is it.

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 ;)
