Accept alias name without complete internet address format RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,

    In Exchange System, all mailbox have alias name assigned and EXchange SMTP service is only allow completed internet email address format (alias@domain.com). Any possible way, when application send out mail to recipient using "alias" (without complete internet address format @domain.com) only, can accept on Exchange system and delivery to recipient ?

    thanks

  • I don't think current transport rule predicates can do that. A customized tansport agent may be worth a try. http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2006/12/04/3397431.aspx http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mstehle/archive/2009/01/13/howto-sample-transport-agent-add-headers-categories-mapi-props-even-uses-a-fork.aspx

  • Hi Keith, I think alias should have matched email address on exchange so it knows where the destination is. A contact object can do it but it means you have to create one contact for each Internet mail address. Best regards.

  • Thank James replied the post. Well, due to some reason from application, we need to have a workaround to solve the problem. Possible to exchange 2007 to rewrite the domain name. Example, If a multi-function printer (MFP) can send out a SMTP Message via Exchange SMTP Server, possible user only enter abc@domain (not completed internet format) and then using transport rule to convert to abc@domain.com?

    thanks
