In Easy365Manager, you configure the “Enable forwarding” and “Keep a copy of forwarded email in this mailbox” checkboxes to control message redirection for specific mailboxes.
Watch a quick video guide here.
You can quickly locate the setting by opening up properties for a user, selecting the Mailbox tab, and clicking on Delivery Options.
This opens up the following form, where you find “Enable forwarding” and “Keep a copy of forwarded email in this mailbox” in the Forwarding section:
In Easy365Manager, the “Enable forwarding” and “Keep a copy of forwarded email in this mailbox” settings corresponds to the ‘ForwardingSMTPAddress’ and ‘DeliverToMailboxAndForward’ parameters of the Set-Mailbox PowerShell command.
The Powershell command “Set-Mailbox -ForwardingSMTPAddress” specifies the email address to which the mailbox’s incoming messages should be forwarded, while the ‘DeliverToMailboxAndForward’ controls whether to keep a copy of the mail in the mailbox:
Set-Mailbox -Identity "Lene Hau" -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $True -ForwardingSMTPAddress email@example.com
When set to true, the ‘-DeliverToMailboxAndForward’ parameter ensures a copy of each email remains in the original mailbox while also sending a copy to the designated address. This can be useful for archiving or backup purposes.
When set to false, messages are entirely forwarded to the specified address, not stored in the original mailbox. This is helpful if the mailbox is primarily used for routing messages and not for storage.
