Forwarding Exchange 2007 Mail To An External Address

This tip comes from Daniel Anderson's blog. Thanks for your help!

First, create a new mail contact in Exchange 2007:

  • Using the Exchange Management Console, click on Recipient Configuration.
  • From the Actions pane on the right, select “New Mail Contact”. 
  • From the New Mail Contact wizard, select New Contact and click next.
  • Either accept the default Organizational Unit for the contact or change it as needed.
  • Complete the contact information and then press the Edit button at the end of the External e-mail address field.
  • Enter in the SMTP Address of the external email address, click Next and then click Finish.

Now we can forward incoming Exchange  2007 mail to the new contact:

  • In the Exchange Management Console go to Recipient Configuration and expand the tree to display the Mailbox branch.
  • Right click on the mail box you want to use and select properties.
  • Click on the Mail Flow Settings tab, select Delivery Options and then Properties.
  • Check the “Forward To” box and then click Browse.
  • Locate the Mail Contact that you created and click OK.
  • If desired, select the “Deliver message to both forwarding address and mailbox” option. 
  • Click OK and you’re done.
