Guide for adding a forward rule in the webmail
- Start Internet Explorer on Windows (no, nothing else will work), and don't use the "light" version of Outlook Web Access.
- Login to http://webmail.ad.umu.se with your CAS id.
- Click Options in top right.
- Click Rules on the left.
- Click New Rule->Create a new rule for arriving messages, according to:
- Click "Forward or redirect..." and tick the "Redirect the message to people or distribution lists" checkbox:
- Click on the blue link "people or distribution lists" in the left half of the window.
- In the window that comes up, enter the mail address where you want the stuff to to in the bottom-most input box:
- Click Ok, that will give you:
- Click Ok, Click Save.
- This will keep a copy in the Exchange server. We don't know how much storage we have there. If you don't want to keep a copy, add a rule saying "Move, copy, or delete" and tick "Delete the message". Change order of the filters so the "Delete" filter goes after (below) the "forward" rule.
