We have an exchange 5.5 server handling our email. The ISP is pointing at our firewall, ...NAT,...blah blah. Our ISP doesn't provide dialup for our outside users. We have two outside users. We want...

All mail sent to monkey@mydomain.com sent to monkey@gwis.com
All mail sent to Grinder@mydomain.com sent to Grinder@aol.com

Monkey and Grinder currently DO NOT currently have Exchange Mailboxes they are outside sales and have NO internal email access.

BONUS WANT
Currently sales@mydomain.com is set up as an additional smtp address along with pete@mydomain.com on the Exchange Server for internal user -Pete. We want mail sent to sales@mydomain.com to ALSO goto monkey@gwis.com and Grinder@aol.com . This would ideally be setup with something other than forwarding by internal user Pete. (if Pete shuts his computer off...forwarding stops)

Thank You !!!
Mark

You want to setup two custom recipients; one for monkey and one for grinder and you also want to add alternate recipients to the sales mailbox.

Setting up monkey and grinder:
Go to Exchange Administrator?s File menu and click New Custom Recipient.
Select the type of address (internet), click OK
In the Internet Address Properties form enter the forwarding address (monkey@gwis.com for one account and Grinder@aol.com for the other) and click OK.
Next you will see the property pages. Enter the appropriate General info and then select the E-mail Addresses tab and click new- Internet address and add the mailbox address of the user (monkey@mydomain.com for one and grinder@mydomain.com for the other) and click OK. This should accept mail to these mailboxes and then automatically send them to the Internet addresses.

Setting up mail forwarding for sales:
I know that the following will send mail from one account to one other account but I?m not sure about sending it to two other accounts (i.e. from sales@mydomain.com to monkey and grinder). You can go to the sales mailbox properties and select the Delivery Options tab. Any mailbox entered into the Give Send On Behalf of permission to list will be able to respond on behalf of the sales mailbox. At the bottom of the form you will see Alternate recipient, I believe (I?m not sure) you will see both mailboxes listed next to the modify button (if you listed them in the Give Send list). Make sure that the Deliver messages to both recipient and alternate recipient check box is checked. This will allow the listed mailboxes to both receive and respond to mail sent to sales. If the check box is not checked then only monkey and grinder will receive the sales mail.

Hope this works, it's been a while since I tried this stuff.

The first post about setting up custom recipients is correct. For the first part about forwarding email to the two outside users. The second part would be to setup as distribution list for sales@mydomain.com, with the members of the list being Pete, grinder and monkey. That way when someone sends mail to sales@mydomain.com it gets sent to Pete, grinder and monkey, even if Pete is not currently in the office and his machine is off.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

this isn't a problem. What you need is an Agent who is running at the Server. I've programmed such Agents for internal use, you will find many ready to use Script at :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/nhp/Default.asp?contentid=28000408
And an other URL:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/exchserv/html/events_4rg4.asp
(This for Exchange Server Scripting)
If you need scripts and other things, so mail me!

regards

Frobo

The answer may be there...somewhere but being as the top two solved my problem. Didn't have the time to pursue weeding through msdn and learning a whole new concept from scratch.

Thanks for the input! Sorry, Ididn't have time to dig.
