  • forward smtp to pop3

    I am having difficulting forwarding from the Exchange Server to a pop3 account for one of our users. I am setting it up in the ActiveDirectory, Email addresses. I have tried setting it up to forward to a pop3 but the instructions I have found are for some reason not working for me. Can anyone assist?

    Is this for a user that has an Exchange mailbox or do you just want to give a user an email address that forwards to an external account? (I assume that's what you mean by "pop3")

        Open up Active Directory Users and Computers, right click the person's user and select properties. Select the "Exchange General" tab and click "Delivery Options". You can set up forwarding from there.

          Hello,
          JeremyW's advice is good. I have just some notes:
          1. Since your user is traveling and he will be back sooner or later, I suggest to keep a local copy of his messages;
          2. In order to forward messages to an external account, you have to create a mail enabled contact

              Your link to the MS site is the one that I found earlier and for some reason I don't get it. From what it says I:
              1. create another user
              2. Set up that email with a pop3 aol address instead of the smtp?
              This is what is confusing to me.

                You have to create a mail enabled contact and not a new user.
