forwarding email from exchange mailbox to pop3 account

System - MS SBS 2003 question: Need help with setting up automatic forwarding of all email FROM exchange mailbox TO an external pop 3 account. I thought I needed to"Allow Automatic Forwarding" in Global Settings - Internet Message Formats - advanced properties,,, and then I was guided to add an "Alternete Recipient" in the users mailbox - but when doing this part, the closest thing I can do is add a "Custom" address - which when I do, it doesn't ask me for the actual pop address I want it forwarded to - is this where the pop connector comes in? - more I dig around, the more confused I make myself! thanks for help!

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

Hi
You need to add and external email address to your exchange server.
see link http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF015.html
Once the address is set up, you can forward to it from your mail box and/or add it to a distribution list.
Hope this helps

    If automatic forwarding is allowed in the global Internet settings, then I believe there is an alternative when you don't want to add a Contact record in Active Directory. The owner of the mailbox can add a Contact with the Pop 3 address in his personal Contacts folder, and then he can create a rule in Outlook to forward all mail to that Contact as it arrives in the mailbox.

    when you say POP account what do you really mean an SMTP internet email address such as name@domain.com or something else? if you mean SMTP address you can create one in a Custom Contact and have the mailbox forward to it. If you don't want see it in the GAL you can hide it once you associate the forward to it.
