I'm trying to forward to an external email address using Exchange 2007. e.g. if someone sends an email to myemail@mydomain.com I want to forward it to myemail@hotmail.com. I've created a MailContact with an external email address, as outlined here. However, this only seems to work if I send an email from within my organisation. If I log onto gmail for example and send an email to myemail@mydomain.com it doesn't seem to get forwarded. Is there something else I should be doing? Thanks,

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

after creating the contact you would need to go into your work email outlook and create a rule to forward all email to the contact. then it should work.

    I'm not certain you need to create a rule, what type of mailbox did you create it as? I'm not certain anything changed from 2000/2003 in forwarding to an external recipient. See this Microsoft blog entry for more.
