The function is there for ages, but I am always forget the following administrative feature. 😉
Sometimes when a employee is unavailable for a longer time, due an extended holiday or sickness, you often will get the request to give access to the mail of the employee. You can do this like mentioned in an earlier blog, creating a Transport Rule to forward all email for one Exchange Mailbox to another person or you can add a forward address to an users mailbox.
You can do this by executing the following command line in the Exchange Management Shell;
set-mailbox -identity “John Johnson” –forwardaddress “firstname.lastname@example.org” –delivertomailboxandforward $true
In the Exchange Management Console you can find the option at the Mailflow Settings tab (Delivery Options) of an users mailbox.
