Set up forwarding in Exchange server 2010

I have created an exchange mailbox named Test.
the user primary email is Test@mydomain.com

I have added and external email address to test mailbox through exchange server 2010 console, by right clicking the mailbox /Properties /selected email addresses tab, then added john@hotmail.com.

However when I send email to test@mydomain.com, john@hotmail.com does not get email on his hotmail.com.

I can not tell why it is not forwarding.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

It sounds like you added an alias for this user where forwarding is done in Mailbox Features - Delivery Options - View details

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

1) You create the user test@domain.com on your exchange server.
2) You create a mail enabled contact for johndoe@hotmail.com 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 'johndoe@hotmail.com' - also check the box to deliver the message to both mailboxes, if desired.

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?
