Off Topic - Outlook

I am including Rick's post bellow. I have Exchange 2000 and have tried
to look for similar options but can't find them. I can't go to File -
New - Custom Recipient - Internet Address. Once again, if I am wrong
please clue me in. There are a few things that are different in 2000.
Like the ability to make an address totally internal is not as easy as
it was in 5.5. You can't remove the SMTP addressing and have to make
recipient policies to "trick" Exchange into doing so. Anyway, lets not
get too off topic here.


Juliet



Here's how I do it with Exchange Server 5.5. In Exchange Administrator
create a custom internet mail account (not an exchange mailbox) for the
user's home address by going to File - New - Custom Recipient - Internet
Address. Then go into the user's exchange mailbox properties, Delivery
Options tab, and Alternate Recipient at the bottom. Check the alternate
recipient box and click the Modify button to add the custom internet
account
you just created. If you want also check the box to deliver to both
accounts. Then I go back and hide the custom account so it doesn't show
up
in the address book, which is a checkbox under the advanced tab in that
mailbox's properties.

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions.

Rick

Juliet,

Ricks post yesterday worked for me to a T. Look back for his post using
Exchange 5.5, if you dont have it anymore msg me offline and i can
forward
it. It took me 2 minutes to set it up and I now get a copy of an email
to
the offline account and the internal account.


THANKS RICK

Thanks to all who responded. Between all of your advice I created a
"contact" on the Exchange Server and set the address to the user's home
address. Then I changed the delivery options of the user's corporate
address to deliver to the "contact" which forwards it home. The
directions are as Todd C. said: "Exchange 2000 Server Administrator's
Pocket Consultant" (page 74).

However, I didn't get the forwarding to work on the client side. I
tried to set up a rule within outlook that would forward to the server
side "contact". No luck. It seems to me to be an all or nothing
situation. Either it goes to one account or the other. I couldn't get
exchange to deliver to the corporate account THEN forward it home. If I
am wrong please tell me. For now this works and I am going to run with
this solution for now.

I am trying to set up rules that would forward messages received to a
user's home address. I can't get this to work. Test messages never
arrive at the home account. I have attempted the same rule using
different outlook accounts - no luck. Is there a setting in Exchange
2000 that I am missing or is this just not possible?

I have tried the same thing to no avial. It does go through and forwards
the messages, but none actually get received at the other end. I would be
interested in hearing further comments on this as well.

I have done this several times for managers and it has worked well. Don't
know anything special that I did. Used the rules wizard to forward any
message received to their home or off-site address and it worked. We have
Outlook 2000 but do not use Exchange Server.

This is way out of my league but I happen to be studying up on Exchange 2000
in preparation for migrating from 5.5. I have a very handy little book
called "Exchange 2000 Server Administrator's Pocket Consultant" (US $29.99
from MS Press) which alludes to this being possible (page 74). It sounds
like a two step process to setup a phantom contact for the user on the
server that has the desired Internet email address and then setting the
"real" user to forward to this contact. Not having Exchange 2000 up I can't
vouch for this. But the book is great - next best thing to having a manual.

Every time I have tried to "forward" externally from Outlook it never works
(in 5.5). Using the above scenario you might try having Outlook forward to
the contact on the server which in turn might go outside your system.

We use Exchange 5.5 - but I would expect this to be the same...
Have you set up the 'home' user account in Exchange? If not, then use
'custom recipients' instead of creating a mailbox. You will also see an
option within the properties of the custom recipient to hide it from your
global address list (If you want to hide it). Once the person 'exists' in
Exchange, it will know where to forward to.

In the client's Outlook session you have to set up a rule that forwards the
messages. But here's the catch: It has to be a server-side rule. That is, it
needs to be a rule processed by the server, not the client. Otherwise, the
messages will not be forwarded until the are delivered to the client, which
kind of makes the rule useless in this case.

This is not something you can specify. If Outlook cannot tell the rule
should be dedicated to the server-side, then it will prompt you.

Since we're on the topic OFF Topic - Outlook, does anyone know an easy way
to stop the junk? I set up a rule to delete email sent to undisclosed
recipients but almost everyday I get some emails sent to weird addresses.
Like today from Tim to mailto:imothy15447fds@....
