Am using SBS 2003 SP2, e-mail works fine with one exception, I receive an error message when forwarding. I created an user in the AD with an external e-mail address, and I get the error below. The local user receives the message.

Was the forwarding configured at the client (Outlook) or the server (ADUC)?

Forwarding is configured at the server level.

Look at the SMTP log for the communication with the external system.  What does the MAIL FROM command show?

It would be nice to see the entire SMTP response.  Perform a manual telnet test so you can see it, then post the response.

I did the telnet test, when I entered the rcpt e-mail address I get 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for E-MAIL. One note, if a mail is sent locally it will forward it, just not anything external. Thank you for all your help.

When you performed the telnet test, to what server did you connect?  Was it your own server, or was it the name/IP address of the recipient domain?  Relaying indicates you were asking the connected server to deliver your message to an SMTP address for which it is not responsible.  For example, if I sent a message to your server addressed to me@yahoo.com, your server would consider it a relay attempt and would treat the message as such.

If you need to determine the name/IP address of the recipient domain, use NSLOOKUP to get that information.

if you want to forward to an external address in exchange, do the following

create a new contact in active directory with the external address you need mail forwarded to. name it something like %username% (External) so you can tell the apart.

go to the user in AD that you want mail forwarded. In one of the exchange tabs you will find the forward to box, browse and select the contact you created.

volia

hope this helps
