I have set a rule in Outlook, I want to forward emails that come from a specific external address to various internal recipients. It does not work!

I have been on the EMC and allowed both automatic replies and forwards, still no joy. Can anyone help?

Hey HKFuey

You need to check that mail forwarding is working properly or not.Use this powershell command Get-Mailbox <identity> | fl ForwardingAddress,DeliverToMailboxandForward
and then Verify that the forwarding address is listed in the ForwardingAddress parameter.

Also, if the DeliverToMailboxAndForward parameter is set  to $false, messages are delivered only to the forwarding address. Check the steps of configuring email forwarding here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351134(v=exchg.150).aspx and ensure that you did not skip any step.

Rest you need to make sure that the email id set to forward doesn't have any spam filter rules associated.

Feel free to revert back for further queries.

Thanks

It suddenly started working!

Do you know if I need both 'Allow automatic forward' and 'Allow automatic replies' ticked in Hub Transport/Remote Domain settings?

Hi again

Good to hear that it started working again.Well if you add allow automatic replies then it  allows messages that are automatic replies from client e-mail programs in your organization, select this option as per your convenience .Selecting 'Allow automatic forward' and 'Allow automatic replies' is usually recommended.

Thanks
