Exchange Management Console

Hi Experts,

we have a SBS 2011 server that has exchange management console onboard. I am trying to find the section that deals with forwarding rules. I know that we had some setup and I can see they work but I cant see where they would be setup.

I am just assuming it is in the exchange management console but I am not sure.

please help!

I think steps 3-6 will point you where to need to go.

To create a user account to receive mail and forward it off-site, follow these steps:

1.  Using the Exchange Management Console, create a mail-enabled contact for the user. Name the contact Alert User Name, such as Alert William Stanek. Be sure to establish an external e-mail address for the contact that refers to the user’s Internet address.

2.  Using the Exchange Management Console, create a mailbox-enabled user account in the domain. Name the account with the appropriate display name, such as Z William Stanek. Be sure to create an Exchange mailbox for the account, but don’t grant any special permission to the account. You might want to restrict the account so that the user can’t log on to any servers in the domain.

3.  Using the Exchange Management Console, access the Properties dialog box for the user’s mailbox.

4.  On the Mail Flow Settings tab, select Delivery Options and then click Proper¬ties.

5.  In the Delivery Options dialog box, select the Forward To check box and then click Browse.

6.  In the Select Recipient dialog box, select the mail-enabled contact you cre¬ated earlier and then click OK three times.You can now use the user account to forward mail to the external mailbox.
