Forwarding mail to an external address in Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007

In Exchange 2010/2007, use the EMC. The new term for a Contact isMailContact.

Create a MailContact using the Exchange Management Console(EMC)

  1. Expand Recipeint Configuration  Mail Contact
  2. In the Action pane, click New Mail Contact
  3. To create a new Contact object, leave the default (New Contact) selected  click Next
  4. Type First name, Last name
  5. Click Edit to add the external email address
  6. Click New to complete creation of new MailContact

Alternatively, use the Shell to create a new MailContact:

New-MailContact -Name “Foo User” -ExternalEmailAddress “xxx@externamail.com

Next, we set the recipient’s Delivery Options to deliver to the alternate recipient.

Now that we have a MailContact created for the external recipient’s email address, we can forward mail for the Exchange recipient to the MailContact. To configure mail forwarding using the EMC:

  1. Expand Recipeint Configuration  Mailbox select mailbox properties  Mail Flow Settingstab  Delivery Options
  2. Under Forwarding address, select Forward to
  3. Click Browse to select the MailContact
  4. Optional: If a copy of the message needs to be delivered to both the external recipient and the original recipient’s mailbox, select the Deliver message to both forwarding address and mailbox.
    DONE!

Copy autocomplete list

Out of Memory when opening Office 2013 files.

The solution is easy – it’s just a stupid error message that has nothing to do with the actual problem, and the problem is actually a microsoft feature, as often is:
– Office now has some kind of “protected-mode” feature, which prevents office apps from doing certain things under certain conditions.
Just go in Excel/Word or Powerpoint  options, trust center, settings, and untick all the options about “protected view”.

Signature won’t save because of File Block settings Outlook 2010

Problem:
When trying to create a new signature or editing an existing one, I get the following error;
“You are attempting to save a file type (Web Pages) that has been blocked by your File Block settings in the Trust Center”
The error also gives instructions to solve it, but when I follow these, I don’t seem to have a “File Block Settings” in Trust Center.

Resolution:
This error is indeed quite confusing as it is not actually coming from Outlook but Word, as the Signature Editor is based on Word. If you follow the given directions in Word, you’ll be able to change the File Block Settings.
Reset the File Block setting in Word and the Signature saving
will work in Outlook again.
