How to redirect messages with incorrect recipients to a specific mailbox ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Exchange 2010 Standard 

    Two accepted domains:
     domain1.tld
     domain2.tld.
    There is only one user with address in domain2.tld
     user@domain2.tld

    Is it possible to redirect all the mail sent to domain2.tld to the mailbox user@domain2.tld

    Example:
    A message with recepient office@domain2.tld comes to the server. There is not mailbox office@domain2.tld in the server.
    I want this message to be redirected to user@domain2.tld instead sending NDR "no such user" (550 5.1.1).

    I tried with transport rule "when recipient address matches @domain2.tld redirect to user@domain2.tld", but NDR is generated and the message does not go to the mailbox user@domain2.tld.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    I just solve this:

    1. I changed the second accepted domain from "Autoritative Domain" to "Internal Relay Domain".
    2. Transpost rule: "when recipient address matches @domain2.tld redirect to user@domain2.tld"

  • You must have reciepient for this address. If you want redirect all message, you can add second proxy address  office@domain2.tld to user.

  • Hi,

    If the primary SMTP address of mailbox user@domain2.tld is user@domain2.tld? If you set the primary SMTP address for this mailbox to user@domain.tld (user@domain2.tld as second address) and change the redirect address to user@domain.tld in transport rule, will this work?

    If this doesn't work as well, then consider to configure Edge server and configure it as Andy suggested.

    Best Regards.

  • Thank you for your answers.

    1. I have forgot to clarify that there is not edge server. "catch-all mailbox" relys on existing edge server
    2. Assigning second address is not applicable - I want to collect all the mail sent to *@domain2.tld (* is wildcard)

    As I said these settings solved the problem:
    1. Changing the second accepted domain from "Authoritative Domain" to "Internal Relay Domain".
    2. Transport rule: "when recipient address matches @domain2.tld redirect to  user@domain2.tld"
