Exchange 2010 Mail forwarding

Hi Guys,


A while ago i created a shared mailbox. Users then  asked me to forward the emails of that shared mailbox to few user's inbox.  I used shell command to forward emails from  shared mailbox to couple of users . I remember using the shell command and adding user names, the emails are being forwarded to users

Now i needed  to add another user and i cannot remember or find the command to do so.

i have googled all day and its getting very frustrated.


If i run this command :

get-mailbox "shared mailbox name" | fl name,*forward*

I get this :

Name                       : sharedmailbox
DeliverToMailboxAndForward : False
ForwardingAddress          :
ForwardingSmtpAddress      :


(This DeliverToMailboxAndForward  basically the same thing as in GUI which i understand and i didnt do this way.)

so cannot figure out what i did :(

Any help...please ?

Forwarding can only be done to one Address so not sure how you did that ..... as said one of the Work around is create a DL for those set of users and in Forwarding of the shared mailbox use the DL

other way could be to create a server side rule and have the forwarding

Problem with forwarding option from Exchange side, it won't forward email with same subject. So, either you need a rule or a script running from Outlook client. As it will be a client specific rule. However, Outlook is not a interactive client.

I am using a VBA script.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Thanks all, for your replies.

 Yes distribution was an option but as it was shared mailbox and the DL is being managed on a diff server, just  found that command which is forwarding  emails. If i want to think of any other solution such as DL i need to first kill that forwarding otherwise users will be getting doubles.

I am so sure that i ran a shell command and i even tested it first with my mailbox and then removed myself and added the names of 3 users at  the end of that commnad

Yes, that is right as well when forwarding emails its forwarding them from that mailbox with
