  • Email Forward Question

    Hi people,

    New here today and wondered if someone could be of help.

    I have a business i look after and a user has left the company. They still want email that comes into him forwarding to 2 other staff memebers.

    At the moment, i have created a distribution group and added the reletive members. I have also setup the forward on the user that is leaving to forward all emails that come into him to be re-directed to the distribution group i created.

    My question is - If i disable or remove the account of the person that is leaving and who has the email forwarding enabled, will the 2 users who will be recieving his email still recieve them?

    Thanks in advance

    Can't you just add the smtp address to the distribution group?

      That's what I've done before.

      You can archive the users email into a .pst file, delete his account and then add the SMTP address to the mail enabled distribution group.

        Ok, is there a way i can archive his mail from the server, or will that need to be done via his workstation. Also where you say add the SMTP address to the mail enabled distribution group, can you clarify where i go to do this?

          Use a tool called exmerge to export the users mail to a .pst file from either your workstation or the server. You just need credentials which has access to that mailbox:

          http://thesource.ofallevil.com/downl...displaylang=en

          You then need to mail enable the distribution group (Right click the group, select all tasks and then mail enabled. I think this is correct, I'm not near an AD at the moment)

          Once it's mail enabled you should be able to view the exchange properties of the group and add the users SMTP address as an additional address.

            or reset his password, login on a computer, configure outlook, export the mailbox.
