There is currently no mechanism from within Microsoft Exchange allowing the user to set forwards. If you have a business case for requiring a mail forward you can request one be set by contacting the IT Servce Desk by email to email@example.com phone +61 3 6226 1818.
As a Microsoft Exchange user, you can set vacation messages in a variety of ways depending on how you access your mail. Common to all Microsoft Exchange users is the Outlook Web Access interface.
Follow these steps to set a forward using Outlook Web Access:
Vacation - Out of office assistant -> enter text -> save
