Exchange account setting forward

Instructions how to set forward from your Exchange Email account to other Email address.

The example here is for forwarding to username@cs.technion.ac.il, but it can be to any other Email address.

Please notice that it is called Email Redirect in Exchange. It will forward the message as is, with From and Subject untouched. It will also leave a copy in your Exchange Inbox.

Exchange Forwarding rule is not Redirect rule. It will forward the message as you do manual forwarding, changing the From and Subject.

How to do it from Outlook 2010:

(To do it from Outlook Web Access (OWA), See below)

  • Enter your Exchange from outlook.
  • Select menu File, select Manage Rules & Alerts.
  • Select Options, Create Rule…
  • Click Advanced Options… This will start the Rule Wizard.
  • Click Next. Click Yes on “This rule will apply to very message you receive…”.
  • Check “redirect it to people or public group”.
  • forward-redirect-exchange Rule Wizard select action
  • If you don’t want to keep the messages in Exchange inbox, check also “delete it”.
  • Click on “people or public group”, and enter the Email address to redirect (forward) to.  Example: moshe123@cs.technion.ac.il , and click OK.
  • forward-redirect-exchange Rule addresses
  • In Exceptions, click next (unless you want to set an exception).
  • In Finish Rule setup, set the name of the rule to: “Redirect ALL to moshe123@cs.technion.ac.il“, or whatever you want. (change moshe123@cs.technion.ac.il to the Email you forward to), And click Finish.
