Hi Team,
I would like to Forward emails from one distribution group (@jaswant .com) to another External distribution group (@xyz .com) in Exchange 2013.
Please note @jaswant .com domain is managed by us. How can I achieve this.

To brief, if someone is sending email to distributed group @jaswant .com , it has to fwd those emails to @xyz .com.
Thanks in advance.

    Hi lahmed123,

    I suppose it can be done via a Outlook inbox rule.

    The general steps would be like:
    1.create a new remote domain for via Exchange Management Shell to allow autoforward to that domain (By default Exchange doesn't allow autoforward to external)

    New-RemoteDomain -DomainName -Name xyz  

    2.create a Outlook inbox rule in a mailbox which is a member of this distribution group (You may either create a new mailbox then add it to the distribution group or use an existing mailbox)
    The rule would be like:

    3.make sure the External distribution group (@xyz .com) accept messages from external
