Hi Ong,
Creating a contact and adding both an internal and external address, and
making the external address as the primary, will forward all emails sent
to the internal address assigned to the contact to the corresponding
external address (primary address). That's the right way to do it when
you don't have a mailbox for that user. I believe it is a supported
configuration by Microsoft.
 
HTH.

Hi,

 

I think I understand what he means.

 

This is something that Exchange has a problem.  Having used Exchange
from 5.5 to 2000 to 2003, I have been facing this problem for the past
few years.

 

Here is the scenario at my company.  One user left and his mailbox is
deleted;   before he left he requested all his emails route to his new
email address for two weeks.  Question is How to do it?

 

Here is the possible solution:

1.      If his mailbox is still around, just a forwarding rule (using
Outlook client) is sufficient. 
2.      If his mailbox is already deleted, then create a Contact and put
his new email address there.  However this only solve the internal mail
problem, internal users saw his contact in the GAL and send the mails to
him.  But what about external mails from internet?  Can these external
mails route to his new email address? 
3.      By chance I experiment by putting his old email address in this
Contacts, the logic is the Exchange will look at the old email address,
route the mail to the Contact, then saw the new email address and
forward it.  This seems to work but it feels kind of strange. 
4.      I even create a new smtp connector and put his old email address
as the "scope", then forward the mails to the smtp server of the domain
of the new email address.  This can work but it just not possible.  If I
need to forward mails for more than one user, this is not logical. 

 

Over here we have a very strict security policy that all users who have
left we must delete their mailbox.  So step 1 is not possible,

 

I used Sendmail before, the Unix admin will know what I means.  Sendmail
allows us to rewrite the mail header, that is the Sendmail will pick out
the old email address, replace it with a new one based on the
virtusertable.  This solution is much cleaner.

 

I have been exploring to do something similar to Sendmail in Exchange.
If you have a FE server, if the mail can re-route at the FE, why let the
mail go all the way to BE then out again?  This will lessen the load on
the BE server.

 

Over here I am considering to put a Sendmail or Postfix server as the
smtp gateway to resolve this issue.

Even the simple client side rule from your outlook, should meet your
requirement. 

Create an outlook client rule and keep it on the server side.

1.      Check for incoming emails based on sender's address 
2.      Forward the messages to the internet email address.

It depends on your needs.

 

For what purpose?

a) Receive mail in both the Exchange mailbox and at another Internet
address

b) All mail redirected to another Internet address

 

Who is in charge of maintaining this forwarding configuration?

1) The user

2) The Exchange administrator
