Our users have found that e-mails sent to a distribution group is not being forwarded when a member of the distribution group sets their Outlook to Out of Office and configures a rule inside of the Out of Office Assistant to forward to some other user (who is not a member of the original distribution group). We have tested this and found that it does work when you set up a rule under Rules and Alerts, but trying to get our users to remember having to activate certain rules when out of office, is not feasible.

We use distribution groups in many places to make it easy to modify document distribution. We need to find a solution that is easy for our users to set up.

Hi,

How did you set up the rule in Out of Office Assistant?

Please choose: Sent to the contact group, and then Forward to another user.

If there are also other rules in his Outlook, please also uncheck the boxes before the rules in Rules and Alerts window.

Also, when using Out of Office Assistant, please make sure the user"s Outlook is open and running.
