Add X-Envelope_To: header ?

    Question

  • Hi, it does not appear possible to add an X-Envelope-To: header to messages to show the original envelope recipient at the point it arrives at the exchange server.  i.e. it is not possible, in the mail flow rules, to obtain the envelope recipient.

    Any ideas appreciated.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I understand you want to generate an 'x-envelope-to' header containing the original recipient.

    Based on my knowledge, the only way to change message header is using transport rule in exchange. But I found no related action to add an 'x-envelope-to' header.

    So we can't add an X-Envelope-To: header to messages header.

  • That is correct.  It seems like an important element of the envelope to obtain.   I cannot understand why envelope information is not accessible?

  • Hi,

    Can you tell us why you want to add an X-Envelope-To: header to messages to show the original envelope recipient?

    As we can find the recipients in the message head, as the picture below displays:

  • Hi, that image is broken for me.  Have you got another link to it?

  • I want to add X-Envelope-To: header to messages  so that I can determine who they were originally addressed to.

    Two messages might both look like they are sent to A.B@xyz.com but really the first was sent to Z@xyz.com and the second sent to Y@xyz.com.  This information gets lost because Z@xyz.com and Y@xyz.com are aliases of A.B.xyz.com
