More information

Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 allowed forwarding of e-mail to Internet accounts by default; this was changed with Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5. To forward mail to an Internet account through version 5.5, the restriction to allow forwarding to Internet accounts must be removed. This can only be done by the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator and the procedure is beyond the scope of this article.
