Exchange server question
BBATES Mar-26-01 04:31 PM
Anyone know how to forward mail from an exchange server to another mail server? Example: Joe Brown wants to forward his email (jbrown@work.com) to his home isp (brownfam@home.net) because he will be out of town on business.

I have a yahoo account. In the mail settings I can have it check mail for up to 3 other accounts. This way If I am away, I can check yahoo and get my home and work emails. Not a bad deal for free and they have 6 MB of free space.

I already made that reccomendation, but 2 of our sales people have AOL and one has some other type of isp that has its own email system. So, I need to forward mail. Our old system would let us forward email. That software was TAO, but now we have outlook and I can't find that option.

Thanks for the input.

I am currently using three ISPs with three mail accounts and Outlook 2000. Most ISPs will allow you to send mail with an address of a mail box at another ISP and Outlook can be configured to do that. I receive mail from all three ISP mail boxes and send mail from <name>@duxcw.com using an ISP other than the one hosting duxcw.com. E.G., I send mail with lbyard@duxcw.com in the from line, but use xxxx.net's (xxxx's are actually something else) mail server to send it. I have been doing this for years and xxxx.net has not complained. I do this because duxcw.com is on a web hosting service that prefers that it not be used to send E-mail; receiving it is ok. In Outlook Express use Tools, Internet Accounts, select the account, and select one ISP for outgoing and another for incoming mail. In Outlook 2000, it’s Tools, Services… Larry

I have my work outlook express setup with 4 identities. One for work, one for home, one for hotmail and one for yahoo so that I can keep all the stuff separate.

I know that outlook and outlook express can retrieve mail from other servers. The problem is email systems such as AOL where the isp does not use pop3 servers for their email. I have no way to configure an aol account to check mail on another email server. That is why I would like to forward the mail from the exchange server to different email accounts such as aol.

Ok, I understand the problem after reading MS KB Q243418 at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q243/4/18.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=aol&rnk=10&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=OUT, which states:

"America Online (AOL) uses such a proprietary protocol to communicate between the user and the AOL service. Microsoft has participated in several meetings with AOL to discuss ways to provide AOL message functionality to Outlook users, either through a standard protocol or through an interface to their proprietary protocol. Microsoft has offered to help develop the software necessary to provide AOL connectivity if AOL will provide the needed technical information. AOL has decided not to provide this functionality to their users, either directly or by providing the information necessary for Microsoft to do so."

Hopefully another reader with the Exchange Server can help you out. If it is any value, I know how to do it on a typical Unix, etc. system. I have mail-forwarding setup for my five web servers. Larry

Thanks for the help. I have a few friends that have some experience with exchange. If I find the answer I'll be sure to post it.

If Outlook is set up to access an Exchange server, then the Support for Microsoft Exchange add ins will have been installed. Under Tools, in the Inbox, you have a tool called Inbox Assistant. In here you can set up rules for Mail Forwarding, unfortunately these only seem to work for other exchange mailboxes!

The only way that I can think of for this is to use a RAS connection from the clients PC, this is simple enough, and you can use Outlook Express instead of Outlook if you need to keep different mail separate. The pop3 settings in Outlook for exchange is simply the name of the Exchange Server.

Hope this works for you, as it seems to work for us!!!

Are you the exchange admin? If so, it is easy to do, just create a custom recepient in Exchange Administrator and put his home isp email address in there. Then within Exchange Admin open up his email box and go under deliver option, there is a place on the bottom to forward all email, pick the cusom recepient address, then you should probably hide the custom recpient address from the Global address book, you can do that too. Hope that helps
