  1. Your post How to setup an email forward Exchange 2007 | Online IT Support was very interesting when I found it over google on Sunday by my search for exchange server 2003. I have your blog now in my bookmarks and I visit your blog again, soon. Take care.

  2. What happens in the case of more than one recipients, it doesn’t allow user to forward mail to more than one user. And it wasn’t the case for Exchange 2003. do u have a solution or work around for this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Can the Exchanged E-mail Account and Associated Active Directory Account be disabled and the e-mail forwarded, say in the case of a Terminated Employee or does the forwarded e-mail account and Active Directory Account need to remain active?

    Thank You in Advanced.
