Forward Exchange 2007 or 2010 email to external account

Problem

If you have an email account in the office but you would like a copy of all your emails sent to another address outside of work we can setup something called an email forward. This leaves emails in the exchange system but also sends a copy to any address you specify, whether  it be hot-mail or GMail etc. Follow the guide below on how to setup email forwarders in Microsoft  exchange 2007 and microsoft exchange 2010

Resolution

This is done by creating a a contact in Exchange management console and then putting a forward to it on the exchange mailbox.

1) First we need to create a contact for the user in question.So in exchange management console drop down to recipient configuration right click “Mail Contact” and select New Mail Contact.
