I am assuming that the email you have setup as a forwarder is to his external eamil account? If it is did you setup an external contact and then use that as the forwarding address? That's what should be done. You can then also hide this contact from the GAL after you have setup the forwarding.

I did that. I added the external email address to his contacts. Still doesn't work.

I added a rule that forwards to an external email. It's only working internally.

Might be a bit of a longshot, but have you looked at the following setting on your Exchange server?

Organization Config - Hub Transport - Remote Domains - Default - Message Format - "Allow automatic forwards" then restart the Transport service.

Also,  how did you setup your mailbox to forward? A rule from Outlook or OWA? I have successfully set this up:

- I created the mailbox contact that I wanted to forward to.

- Go into the properties of your Exchange mailbox that you want to forward from (using Exchange Management Console)

- Go to the "mail flow setting" tab

- Select delivery options > properties

- Check the box forward to : add the contact (gmail account)

- Check the box "deliver to both forwarding address and mailbox" if you need it to go to both mailboxes

Do email signature updates give you a headache?

Do you feel like you are constantly making changes to email signatures? Are the images not formatting how you want them to? Want high-quality HTML signatures on all devices, including on mobiles and Macs? Then, let Exclaimer solve all your email signature problems today.

you can simply apply forwarding on both if you both have account on same domain.
