We are It Resellers who have responsibility to set up and maintain a Win 2003 SBS site with 15 users. All users have an e-mail address "username@company.co.uk". Exchange is set up to collect e-mails every 15 mins and distribute to respective inboxes. Everything runs A-OK. Client has now added a new user who will be doing business research/marketing research in collaboration with a local University Post-Grad Department. User has been supplied with a new laptop with XP-Pro, Office 2003 Pro, Project 2003 Std. This user will be predominantly working off-site. How do we set-up a mechanism to allow this user to be able to receive e-mails from the Exchange server within SBS? (or get a copy of e-mails sent to her inbox inside SBS's Exchange) If it helps to provide an answer, the user has a private yahoo account, but we would prefer to retain a copy of e-mails received by Exchange and just send on a copy of such received e-mails. Regards BOB If it helps provide a simple solution, user has a private yahoo account. Can we copy

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Create a contact in the ADUC with his/her yahoo account and go to the properties of the real account, in the Exchange General tab click delivery options, click to check “forward to” and select the contact you created. You can click to check the box which says ” deliver messages to both ….” so that the copy will remain in his/her actual mailbox.
I hope I understood your question correctly and the answer solves your problem.

    If you're using SBS2003 then you should also have OWA available for your users. The user should only need to know the public ip address/servername of the server, and then enter their username and password details for authentication onto the exchange server.
