Add external email address forwarding to Mailbox without using Contact object

Hi All,

Many of the exchange Administrators might already be aware of this but for those that are not aware here is my blog post.

If a request comes to you that please forward the emails from a particular mailbox to outside company email address.

All of us will simply create a contact object in exchange & will use forwarding option in exchange management console & will point it to

that contact object.

There is one more way to achieve this & this will avoid using contact objects (that can clutter the system if you are a big exchange organization).

use TragetAddress attribute to achieve this.

Open adsiedit.msc & modify that user object for which you want to add forwarding , add the email address in targetaddress field.

If you have any doubts , do ask me.
