Exchange 2010 with Google Apps for Education

Posted on 2014-10-14
Last Modified: 2015-06-27
We are currently working on transitioning to Google Apps for Education and looking to setup dual delivery with our intranet emails.  Currently external emails are being delivered to both Google and our Exchange server.  I would like to know if there is a way, and how to setup our Exchange server to deliver intranet emails to our Exchange server and Google.

Thank you in advance for your help.

You can setup dual delivery. This allows emails to be sent to and from both.

We have dual delivery setup for emails being sent to our staff.  What I am looking for is how to setup dual delivery for internal emails.  As of right now, if I send an email to a staff member the email only gets delivered to Outlook...I would like the email to also be forwarded to their Gmail account.  This would only be for a short time while we are trasitioning to Gmail.

You need exchange setup as a relay with a forward to the internal/temp domain.

Could you provide a good reference for setting up a relay to forward to our GAFE domain.  I am not an Exchange expert...(haha)...would just like to be sure I can get this setup correctly.

Thank you.

Here is the starting point.

If you are not confident, a few hours of help from a qualified reseller can save hours of aggravation.

we currently have dual delivery setup with Google, delivering external mail first to Google and then forwarding to our Exchange server.  I am looking to temporarily  setup a relay to forward emails inside my domain to Google.  This is only temporary for people to start transitioning to Gmail as their primary email.

Doing so can create a loop.  Follow the guidelines for your config
We typically setup to go to legacy first and forward to google.
