How the hell do you forward outbound e-mail traffic to another e-mail server?

helped me track down a compromised user account that was relaying ...

We've still got Exchange 5.5
My old MS exchange books are in cold storage in the loft, but I think you can set up an Internet Mail Service connector under Connections in Exch Admin. Once you're there, under the connections tab on the IMS/IMC there's an option to forward inbound/outbound/all messages to a specified host.
^^ What he said ^^
I should add that our IMC falls over regularly. No warning, and the internal stuff still flies around happily, you just get a huge pile of messages in the outbound queue. 5.5 really doesn't cut it thesedays.
We only have to put up with it for a few more months, then we get an upgrade to.........
Yep, i figured it out shortly after posting. Why the application can't be configured to use our new Exchange 2007 environment i'll never know. IT has to be Win2k and Exchange 5.5
Anyway, some mail is flowing, some not. However, i think a bit of user error might be the problem.
Place where I am supporting at the moment doesn't have exchnage. Everyone uses hotmail/yahoo etc.
And no budget plans for Exchange.
Just out of curiosity, how come you're not upgrading to a slightly newer version ?
We skipped 2000, and went from 5.5 to 2003 - looks like we're going to do the same with 2007 - skip that and go for 2010. Still 'debating' that one though..
All fixed. Nothing wrong with my exchange config.....i was given the wrong mail relay.
Military system, security, accreditation, etc, etc,
Fact is 2003/XP SP2 was more secure out of the box than our 'hardened' NT4/Win2K builds, but they'd spent the money and time poking and prodding the software, so we have to use it.
Go on! Sign up for DII/F - you know you want to!
When I started this job in 2003 DII was '18 months away'. Six years later, it's way over budget and still not anywhere near us. We're going to ASH instead.
Ummm......I don't know if anyone has told you, but ASH is also down to go over to DII/F - probably around the beginning of 2011.
The Rhythm Is Gonna Get Ya - uh huh!
