More information

In Exchange Server 2010 you can forward a signed S/MIME message in Microsoft Office Outlook or in Outlook Web App by using one of the following methods:
  • Forward a signed S/MIME message by using forwarding rules through ECP.
  • Forward a signed S/MIME message as usual.
  • Forward a signed S/MIME message as an attachment.

Currently, only the third method works. Therefore, we recommend that you forward a signed S/MIME message as an attachment in Microsoft Office Outlook or in Outlook Web App.
