Default Auto forward email rule

Hi all

Not sure if this should be posted here or in an exchange forum so sorry if
this isn't the right place for it!!

We have Exchange 2003 on our server providing our company emails. We have
remote users who use Outlook clients (2003 or 2007) to send and receive their
company emails using pop3.

One of the users has a need to autoforward emails in his absence to another
of our employees, he tried using the Rules to set this up but it fails to
work unless he is actually in his email. This suggests it is a client side
rule? Or is it the server overriding / preventing these rules even though
they are using pop at the time and not connected to the exchange server as
such?

Is there anyway to make this work? I can't forward using the Exchange server
account as it only gives you one address option and we have all mails
forwarding to an Archive account as standard.

I just need confirmation if this will work or not, if not I try the share
folders & permissions method.

Thanks... Sue

Default Auto forward email rule

A POP3 user cannot create rules that will run on the Exchange server. The
user would need to use either an Exchange account in Outlook or access the
server with OWA.

I don't understand what you're saying about the limitation on forwarding by
the server.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions :-)

We have got round it by forwarding emails to his account using exchange
instead. The user didn't want this to be ALL the time, only in the other
users absence but I don't want to have to keep changing this all the time for
them as he is away often. So, he just has to have emails forwarded all the
time and just delete the ones he doesn't want or something...
