2) You create a mail enabled contact for on the server
3) Within Exchange mailbox properties for the user, go to Mail Flow Settings | Delivery Options | Check the box "Forward to:" and then select the mail-enabled contact for '' - also check the box to deliver the message to both mailboxes, if desired.

It sounds like you added an alias for this user where forwarding is done in Mailbox Features - Delivery Options - View details
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Instead of a test mailbox, create a test contact and set the external address.

Is auto-forwarding disabled for the remote domain?  Check by using the following Powershell

get-RemoteDomain | select Identity, AutoForwardEnabled

If this is false, you'll need to set it to true:

Set-RemoteDomain -Identity <identity> -AutoForwardEnabled:$true

@ola, what is that for crappy advice?, we could say that to every visitor on EE. Grow up and help people.

Eh, no. I'm helping the man to fish in stead of giving him a fish. See the difference?

If he is setting up an exchange server and asking this question he needs a book because he will have a few more questions, agree?
