Use method 1.  It does not require you to enable fowarding on the message
formats domain, so users can't write rules to forward messages outside your
system.  Only the Exchange admin can establish fowarding.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Automatic forwarding

Hi all,


We have an Exchange 2K3 SP2 environment with the "Allow Automatic forward"
option turned off (ESM -> Internet Message Formats -> in the Default

This pretty much means that no Outlook user can automatically forward (using
rules) their e-mail to an outside Internet e-mail address.


However, for a couple of particular users, we would like to have them be
able to forward their mail to a particular external SMTP domain.


I know Exchange allows us to do that by creating a new policy for that
particular domain (in the Internet Message Formats) but this will allow
everybody to automatically forward their e-mails to that particular external
SMTP domain.


Is there a way to allow only certain people (accounts) the right to auto
forward to this new domain?


Thank you,
