Exchange 2010 - forwardingsmtpaddress not forwarding


  • I am currently running an Exchange 2010 environment.  Recently a number of users requested that their emails be forwarded to their personal email accounts.  Rather than create contacts for each user I thought it was easier to use the -forwardingsmtpaddress mailbox parameter.  However it seems as if the users' mail is still being delivered to their exchange mailbox and not being forwarded to their personal email addresses.   When I set the delivertomailboxandforward to $True the email is delivered to the exchange mailbox and goes no further.   Am i misunderstanding the purpose of the forwardingsmtpaddress parameter?  Am I doing something wrong?  I appreciate any help.

  • This thread discusses the issue:

    That property apparently doesn't do what you'd think it would do.

    The proper way to accomplish what you want is to create a mail contact for the personal mailbox and make it an alternate recipient on the mailbox using the ForwardingAddress parameter and the DeliverToMailboxAndForward parameter as desired.

  • Hello,

    Maybe you need to create mail contacts (or mail users), I checked this in my lab, without mail contacts, it will not save the PowerShell settings in AD and EMC, and will not help you to forward the emails.
