Filter Emails by Gender

    常规讨论

  • Overall my idea is to filter gender is so i can send emails only to males or to female but not to whole organisation.

    How would i filter emails?

    Iam trying to filter emails based on the gender. Is it possible to configure some one on exchange 2010?

    i know of 3 ways of doing this through

    first:  OWA\distribution list where the user creates the distribution list and adds users according to the gender

    second: users will have to create a list in outlook contact and add users by gender.

    thirdly to create two different distribution groups Fmale and male and add users accordly.

    Is there any other way that i could be able to filter by gender and to send emails instead of creating the above, if you know could you please assist with you briliant ideas.

    Thank you

    Extend your AD schema by adding a "Gender" attribute.

  • Extending the schema seems extreme.  I would explore adding "Male" or "Female" in customattribute1 for example and then filter on that with transport rules.

    Though I must ask - why on earth would you want to do this?

  • Agree with Mike, probably best not to extend your schema. It will be harder to filter on and update through the GUI too.. Just use custom attributes if you must.

    I don't know where in the world you are and what local legislation is, but I would be wary of implementing something like this. It sounds like a potential lawsuit waiting to happen. In the days when I was on the customer side, I would not do anything that sounded dodgy, full stop.

    Legitimate scenarios I can think of usually involve HR departments wanting to do equality surveys and the like, and typically they might want to personalise the message in some way anyway, and will already have a database with fields including gender. I'd kind of lean towards suggesting they look at doing a mail merge using their information and leave well alone ;-)

  • Hi Guys,

    iam not trying to do something which needs the company or HR departments attention.

    All iam tyring to figure out is something like this here is an examle;

    When there is a meeting and  only ladies are to attain and the meeting gender is send to the ladies you dont want the emails to go to the males coz it obviously males dont need to know.

    So i trying to figure out how to (sort or filter) emails by gender when anyone organising meeting they would only send emails to females or males when required.

    Let me know if you have brilliant ideas coz i dont think extending scheme is something i need to do.

    cheers

    Why does it seem extreme? If it's a datum that's necessary why not
    codify it with a meaningful name and set of characteristics?

    extentionAttributes are, IMO, too general for a this. There are also
    (currently) too few of them.

    Maybe he has advertising (for example) that's less effective if it's
    sent to the wrong audience. Advertising jockstraps to women probably
    wouldn't be very cost-effective. :-)

    So don't use the GUI.

    Like putting pictures in the AD? Or licence plate numbers? Or "Mr",
    "Mrs" or "Ms"?

    Could be in a number of countries where men and women might not mingle - Arabian peninsula comes to mind.

    Or in the West where there's a "Men's Club" or "Women's Club" component of a larger organization (church, ethnic organization).

    Or Ladie's Night Out thing.

    Who knows.

    Would seem strange in the Western corporate world though.
