Setting up a forwarding address

A forwarding address allows users who have Person documents in the Domino® Directory to have their mail forwarded to another address.

About this task

Set up forwarding addresses for users who:

  • Change their names -- for example, because of marriage -- but still want to receive all their messages.
  • Move -- for example, a user may resign from the company but leave a forwarding address so that mail addressed to the old address is forwarded to the new location.
  • Use a different mail system and do not have Notes® mail files.

Configure the forwarding address on the user's Person document.

By default, the Router supports use of the Send copy to rule action, which lets Notes® users create mail rules to automatically forward copies of messages delivered to their mail files to another address, such as a forwarding address. You can also set delivery controls to disable automatic forwarding.
