Client email problem

billybob01billybob01 Member Posts: 504
At work we are running Exchange 2003 and all our clients are using Outlook.

A client has an email address, lets say [email protected] and he has asked if i could set him up with another email address, lets say [email protected] so that any emails comming in to his default address [email protected] is automatically forwarded to his other email address? Can this be done? if so where? on exchange or in his account. I have tried to add another email for him [email protected] but in Outlook it defers back to his default address.

    I've seen this done, but I'm not much of an exchange expert. I believe it has to be done at the server.

    Set "[email protected] " as his primary email address.

    Why not setup a client side rule in his Outlook to forward all mail sent to him to his secondary address?

    Set up a contact in AD for Bob's [email protected] email address. In Bob's AD user account properties, go to exchange general, delivery options, and forward bob's email to the contact you created.

    I would create a custom recipient address. Then have those emails forwarded to his other account.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    I've used this method with success for multiple users
