I recently had a requirement where we had a few hundred mailboxes that needed to be enabled for Forward Mailbox on the email router in a CRM 2011 deployment, a task that may sound daunting were it not for the “Rule Deployment Wizard”, with which we can bulk deploy Exchange Rules to enable to forwarding of all emails as attachments to the Forward Mailbox.
However, as with all things Email Router, it is not always as simple as one would hope. There are quite a few dependencies, mostly around permissions (credentials, relay access etc.) that make the email router the subject of many a consultants frustrations.
In this instance I ran into an issue where the Rules would not deploy because the wizard said “there is no such object on the server”
