Exchange 2007 - email approval RRS feed

  • Question

  • What we are trying to achieve is that whenever a mail is sent by a user to an external recipient it should be forwarded to responsible person for approval, in this case it is forwarded to the line manger for manual approval. Once approved the mail has to go to the intended recipients as it was from the original sender (not from the line manager). Thanks

  • Hi,

    Secure that group by enabling only authticated/selectd users can send mail on it.

    the alternate way to achieve this is MOSS.

    Also there are some tricks using public folders, but it isn't always that reliable.

    You could use a standard list serve application that has a moderation capability - which is basically what you are asking for.

    I hope this will help you.

  • It isn't possible to moderate at this kind of level. The only kind of moderation you can do is with groups, and that requires Exchange 2010.

  • There's this....

    www.mailapprover.com

    It's an Outlook plug-in that adds a pick list of authorised 'approvers' to all email compose forms.

    The email is then routed to the selected staff member, who sees extra 'Approve / Edit / Reject' buttons in a form region in the message.

    The approved message is sent 'From' the original author, not the approver.

    The plug-in does need Exchange, but only for purposes of identifying internal emails from external (By comparing against the GAL).

    Different users can be assigned different rights through Active Directory groups (so some users are forced to submit ALL external messages for approval, but others are permitted to opt out).
