Exchange 2013 Email forwarding not enabled

Hi
Have Exchange 2013, am attempting to forward a mailbox to external address.
When using Admin Centre, Add the email enable forwarding for the user, search and add the contact, hit OK and the contact is not in the box, cannot proceed as nothing is in the forwarding box.

Have tried Set-Mailbox -Identity "USER NAME" -ForwardingSMTPAddress "email address"

WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '/MyBusiness/Users/SBSUsers/USERNAME'
have been modified.

Have tried to enable remote domain

I have also noticed that OriginatingServer                    : N1-ASP-AS01.domain.local  is incorrect, this is a DC and was the SBS server 2007 Exchange, we have moved Exchange to N1-ASP-MX10, should OriginatingServer also be updated ?

Thanks in advance

If you don't need to keep a local copy of the email... i.e. just forward the email

Edit the user account with adsi edit and set the targetAddress value to "SMTP: newaddress@domain.com"

You can create a contact record, add an external email address and then forward an internal users email to that contacts address.

Have tried that, from the shell get the following

Have tried Set-Mailbox -Identity "USER NAME" -ForwardingSMTPAddress "email address"
get the response

WARNING: The command completed successfully but no settings of '/MyBusiness/Users/SBSUsers/USERNAME'
have been modified.

If you want to setup a forward but delver to the local mailbox as well... then you have to create a mail contact for the target address and assign the contact as the forwarding address.
