One common question from users are “How can I forward my email to my home mail?” or from a manager “How can we forward his/her mail to the external address?”. In fact in Exchange there is several possibilities, but most of them requires some administrator involvement. For users to forward their own email an administrator would have to allow it.
Users could define a forward using outlook. This requre the administartor to allow it. The administrator will have to set “AutoForwardEnabled” on “Remote Domain” : Set-remotedomain “*” -AutoForwardEnabled $true . This will ofcourse enable this for all users. They will be enables to send to det remote domain defined or all.
set-mailbox demouser -forwardingsmtpaddress firstname.lastname@example.org -delivertomailboxandforward $true
This will sett forwarding for mailbox with alias demouser to email@example.com , and also deliver mail to both the forwarding address and the mailbox. One thing to notice is that for this to work you will have to add “dom.ex” as a remote domain in exchange.
