Redirect or forward email to gmail account


G

I need to have emails sent to my exchange address (Outlook 2003) redirected
or forwarded to my gmail account. I need this to preserve the from:, cc:,
and bcc: addresses on the original email.

The redirect rule will send the email to my gmail account, but it strips out
any cc: or bcc: email addresses. I can't reply to those cc: or bcc: email
address or even see what they are. I can reply to the from: email address.

The forward rule will also send the email to my gmail account, but it
changes the from: email address to my exchange address. It puts all of the
from:, to:, cc:, and bcc: email addresses into the body of the message so
that I cannot reply all or reply to. At least with this method, I can see
who the cc: and bcc: recipients are.

Is there a way to redirect or forward emails to my gmail account so that it
retains the from:, to:, cc:, and bcc: fields and allows reply all or reply to?

Thanks.

Err, well, first, how are you seeing BCC'd addresses on messages you receive?
You shouldn't actually see that, so I'm curious what's going on there.

That said, take a look for 'Forward as Attachment' rather than forward.
That way you would get the original message as an attachment which would
include all the data that comes in with the header. I'm not sure if you'll
be able to open .msg files through the gmail interface, but, that's the only
way you'll really be able to do it. Outlook doesn't have a redirect option.

You may want to look at options on the Exchange side.

One might want to ask tho, why do this? Is it just to have access to the
mail messages? Have you asked your Exchange admin about web based access
to your Exchange mailbox, or if they have any concerns about you forwarding
messages out of office like this?
