Forwarding emails from one distribution group to another External distribution group Exchange 2013

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

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


Regards
Iahmed123

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 xyz.com via Exchange Management Shell to allow autoforward to that domain (By default Exchange doesn't allow autoforward to external)

 New-RemoteDomain -DomainName xyz.com -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
