Forwarding Internal Exchange mail to google apps mail

By hellofellow ·
Currently all external mail is forwarding just fine to the new google mail. However, our internal mail is not. It is still being sent to their old outlook in-boxes.

I have changed the MX records to point to Google and even tried deleting the old mailbox.

Any hints would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You

Check Active Directory and/or Exchange

by Dedlbug In reply to Forwarding Internal Excha ...

Exchange will deliver mail to an address in Active Directory first, prior to going externally. If the address exist, it will deliver right into the mailbox. You should check Active Directory and/or Exchange (depending on Server/Exchange version) and see if a user has the affected email address assigned. You can change it and test the google email address again. Since you are using Google now, I assume Exchange won't be necessary?

Let us know how you make out. =]

Experiencing the same problem

by darkscrypt In reply to Forwarding Internal Excha ...

We have this same problem at my organization.
In our situation, our exchange server is not what we call reliable, as it operates over an internet connection that frequently goes down, one of the reasons we wish to move to google apps.

We pointed our MX Records to google apps, and have configured apps to foward all messages to our exchange server so that we can do a pilot test. Everything works fine, with the exception that any intra domain messages within our organization (exchange user -> exchange user) will not work. Exchange simply delivers the message to the users exchange inbox, and then quits.

I need a method for getting ALL of the mail from our exchange server into the google apps, especially the internal communications, as these occupy the bulk of our email. Is this possible through existing tools, such as the Email Migration Kit that comes with google apps?

The simplest way for us to accomplish what we want, seems to be that Exchange simply forward all internal mail to google apps. From what I have seen, this does not seem to be possible. I want to know if this is possible, or if I need to look for another solution, such as using a MAPI sync tool that always runs.
