Exchange 2003 scripting email forwarding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Is there a script which can enabled email forwarding on Exchange 2003 , basically we got the contact cards already set up , we just need to enable the forwarding for each account? any easy way of doing this , because I do not really want to go one by one as we got over 400 to do.

    Thank you.

  • Hi DJ SAI,

    I think ADModify may work for such bulk update. Please test it in the lab first.

  • Hi there,

    Exchange 2003 is out of support, it is recommended to upgrade to higher version like Exchange 2010 or Exchange 2013. Your understanding would be appreciated.

    Maybe so, but it hasn't stopped working!

    C'mon. That's not even remotely helpful.
