Forwarding Email to Your Hosted Exchange Account

Forwarding Email to Your Hosted Exchange Account

 

Use the information below to forward email from your local email server to a hosted Exchange mailbox.

Alternate Email Addresses
Every user has an alternate email address in the format of:

username.domain.name@alternate_domain

For example if you have a user account named  jdoe hosted for domain company.corp on the exg6.exghost.com servers, then this user account would have an email address of jdoe@company.corp and an alternate email address of:

jdoe.company.corp@fwd6.exghost.com

Current alternate domain names are:

EXG5:   fwd5.exghost.com
EXG6:   fwd6.exghost.com
EXG7:   fwd7.exghost.com
