Forward or redirect problem on exchange 2007/2010 not working

When trying to do a redirect on a mailbox externally, it was not processing the email.
Internal was fine.

Apparently forwarding / redirects to external domain names is disabled by default in Exchange 2007 and 2010.

To change this setting, open the Exchange Management Console, and drill down to the Organization Configuration -> Hub Transport.  Under the Remote Domains tab, open the Default domain.

Then, on the format tab, check the “Allow automatic forward” box.

Alternatively, from the Exchange Management Shell (PowerShell rocks!), this will do the trick:

set-remotedomain -identity Default -AutoForwardEnabled $true

iOS 6.1: Excess Exchange activity after accepting an exception to recurring calendar event Products Affected iPad, iPhone

Symptoms

When you respond to an exception to a recurring calendar event with a Microsoft Exchange account on a device running iOS 6.1, the device may begin to generate excessive communication with Microsoft Exchange Server. You may notice increased network activity or reduced battery life on the iOS device. This extra network activity will be shown in the logs on Exchange Server and it may lead to the server blocking the iOS device. This can occur with iOS 6.1 and Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 or later, or Microsoft Exchange Online (Office365).

* An exception is a change to a single instance of a repeating calendar event.

Resolution

Apple has identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update. In the meantime, you can avoid this bug by not responding to an exception to a recurring event on your iOS device. If you do experience the symptoms described above, disable then reenable the Exchange calendar on your iOS device using the steps below.

  1. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  2. Select the Exchange account from your Accounts list.
  3. Turn the switch for Calendars to OFF.
  4. Wait ten seconds.
  5. Turn the switch for Calendars back to ON.
