Email Forwarding to external email address. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I setup email forwarding for a couple of users using Set-Mailbox -Identity user -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $True -ForwardingSMTPAddress anotheruser@externaldomain.com

    When I run get-mailbox for those users, I see that email forwarding is setup.

    External users do not receive emails.  Can someone help me with this problem? 

    Thank you. Eric.

  • Not sure where to check.  I opened Exchange Toolbox and checked Queue Viewer.  I saw the message addressed to that external SMTP address, but it was gone quickly.  I guess it left our network.

    Is there another place to check in Exchange 2013?

    Thank you. Eric.

    Do not waste a time, it's by design. But, if it is impossible to create a Mail Contact, then read this article  - Allow Automatic Forwarding/Replying to the Internet

    But I do not recommend you to allow Auto Forwarding.
