Microsoft Exchange – Forwarding Mail To External Email Addresses

KB ID 0001350 Dtd 05/10/17 Problem Note: Below I’m using Exchange 2016, but the same approach will work for previous versions.

For example, if the user requesting this does not need an Exchange mailbox, i.e. because they only use their Gmail account then it’s probably a...

Updating Domain Computer Objects with User and Machine Information

KB ID 0001340¬†Dtd¬†24/08/17 Problem I can’t really take the credit for this, I was at a client’s site a few weeks ago, and they were doing this.
