Server side forwarding rules RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a user who wishes me to set up a forwarding rule to forward all email from one mailbox (mailbox 1) to another (mailbox 2). However, he wants some sort of marker/message applied to the emails so that they are distinguishable as emails from mailbox 1. I am using Exchange 2007.

    I can set the basic auto-forward but I was wondering if it is possible to do what is required server side or whether it will need to be a server/client side combo?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    It is possible to set the auto-forward, which can be achieved only through transport rule in Exchange 2007. If you want to distinguish between sending emails and forwarding emails, you can add a specific subject with the string. You can refer to the following detail steps:

    Go to EMC->Organization Configuration->Hub Transport->open Transport Rules to the middle tab->click New Transport Rule to the right part->select ‘sent to people’ in step 1 of Conditions->edit the people value in step 2->click Next->Select ‘copy the message to addresses’ in step 1 of Actions->edit the address value in step 2->select ‘prepend the subject with string’ in step 1 of Conditions->edit the string value in step 2->click Next->Click New

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

  • Do the entire thing with transport rules. You can do the forward and the prepend the subject line.
    If the end user wants them in to a separate folder, then a rule will have to be created in Outlook.
