Redirect Exchange email with a server side rule.

Redirect Email with a Rule

Important information you should know.

At this time, Apple mail included in Mac OS 10.6+ does not have the ability to create server side redirect rules. Users of Apple mail will need to use the OWA or Outlook methods below to manage their server side rules.

If you have not enabled your Exchange account, visit and enable both Exchange options before you continue. (It could take up to 30 minutes for activation, please be patient before continuing.)
