Hi, v9 SP4 and SP5. Extension belongs to ring group. Extension has call forwarding Exception configured (specific hours, or, Outside of business hours - tried both) to forward to external number. When the ring group receives a call, *anytime, not only during specific hours*: The ring group extensions get notified and start to ring. Once the extension with the exception rings, it transfers the call to the external number. The server activity log shows below: This ring group 801 has 2 extensions, 106 and 107 - 106 has the Exception configured. Does the call to extension 106 not look odd? 17:18:22.669 [MS210007] C:32.3:Answer provided. Connection(by pass mode): 192.168.16.51:4872(4873) 17:18:22.668 [MS210001] C:32.1:Answer received.
