We got a SBS2003 installed and it comes with its own exchange. We have set it up for internal emails and for external emails, we’ve a smart host at our ISP. So whenever someone email to someone inside office, it goes to exchange, exchange recognized it as internal email and does not send it out to ISP. And when someone email to someone outside office, exchange recognized it as external email and sends it out to ISP. So this is the scenario. And we got one of our employee who usually works outside and got notebook. On that notebook, we have setup outlook to receive both internal and external emails, from exchange and from ISP. For exchange he connect it via VPN and receive mails directly from exchange. For ISP he connect it via POP3 and receive mails from ISP. And he also got blackberry for which he has setup to receive his external emails from ISP through POP3. And the problem is he wants to receive his internal emails as well. Can you suggest anything. What I suggest is to forward his internal emails to ISP as well but I doesn’t know how to? Is it possible, and if yes, then how?

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

If you set up a ‘contact’ identity for the external address in Exchange, you should then be able to forward the internal email to his external email address. It could also be set the same way to forward only to his Blackberry, if you don’t want the internal emails forwarding to both laptop and BB.

This is one soloution for forwarding. However the mbetter solution is to use The small business version of Blackberry server which is relatively inexpensive. This will synch with exchnage and be a cleaner solution. Also – does the user need access to any resources besides exchange? If not – you han use RPC over HTTP and remove all the VPN hassles…
