Automatically forward an Exchange e-mail account to a POP3 account

Learn how to configure Exchange 2003 to automatically forward an Exchange e-mail account to a POP3 account.

I just set up my first Exchange server. I am trying to automatically forward an Exchange e-mail account to a POP3 account. I am using Exchange 2003. I've only been able to find information for how to do this on an Exchange 5.5 server.
Here are the steps you need to take:
  1. In Exchange System Manager, double-click Global Settings -> Internet Message Formats.

  2. Right-click Properties -> Advanced and uncheck the "Allow automatic forward" checkbox.

  3. In Outlook, configure a new rule to forward all e-mail to the POP3 SMTP address. OR, in Active Directory Users and Computers, add an 'Alternate Recipient' to the mailbox in question.
