Exchange 2010 SBS 2011 - an employee retired. Setting up an auto reply and forward their mail?
Posted on 2014-04-07
Can someone help me? A user retired from a client with SBS 2011
They want mail coming into that user to
a) have the sender get an autoreply saying the person retired and mail is being forward to someone else. w e'll get back to you soon.
b) forward the mail to user1 and user2
I created a dist group - retiredforward and the 2 members are user1 and user2
in ECM, I set up mail flow for retired user to forward to retiredforward.
I logged in as the retired user in OWA and set an away message.
mail to retired user does get to user1 and user2, but no away message.
Is that because the mail is only forwarding to retiredforward and never hitting the retired user's mailbox to trigger the away message?
How to correct that and or is there a better way to forward to the 2 users and generate the away message?
