  • Exchange 2010 auto forwarding not working.

    Hi,
    I've been struggling with this one for a while and could do with some help. I have enabled auto forwarding in Exchange 2010 and ran Get-RemoteDomain Default | fl which shows auto forwarding is enabled but it still doesn't work. I've tried it on two clients (running outlook 2007 and 2010) neither of which work. Are there any other settings or is there a work around? The problem being I have an email address that needs swapping from one user to another. They used to do this themselves via the auto forward rule but now I have to log in to the server and swap the address over every time and it's getting to be a problem.
    Thanks,
    Paul

    What does the GUI say?
    Forwarding messages on an auto forward can be hit and miss at the best of times, as it can be seen as spoofed email and get flagged as spam.

    What is the actual objective - it isn't clear from your question. There may well be a better solution.

    Simon.

      Hi Simon,
      Here is the background: We have a sales team that forward work to the admin manager via a secondary email address. The work is graded in priority so that P1 in the title is to be done ASAP, P2's take next priority etc. The admin manager distributes the work between the admin staff but she is not always there so I redirect the secondary email address emails to the next member of staff in the chain who then distributes the work.
      If it's possible to write a batch command to redirect the emails that would be fine.
      Thanks,
      Paul

        The only thing I can suggest is to add/remove forwarding on the actual mailbox itself, so that forwarding is done server side. There isn't really anything in Exchange to make this easier.

        You could write a Powershell script to do it for you, but my scripting skills are awful, so I cannot help with that.
