You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Recipient Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, right-click the mailbox for which you want to configure mail forwarding, and then click Properties.
  3. In <Mailbox> Properties, on the Mail Flow Settings tab, click Delivery Options, and then click Properties.
  4. Select the Forward to check box, and then click Browse.
  5. In Select Recipient, select the recipient to whom you want to forward messages, and then click OK.
    noteNote:
    By default, the dialog box displays all recipients that are in the current recipient scope specified in the Recipient Configuration node. To learn more about the recipient scope and its impact on the recipient work center, see Understanding Recipient Scope.
  6. If you want incoming messages to be delivered to the mailbox as well as to the forwarding address you specified, select the Deliver message to both forwarding address and mailbox check box. Clear this check box to forward all incoming messages without retaining copies in the mailbox.
  7. Click OK to return to <Mailbox> Properties.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
