Auto Response notification of email domain change

We currently are supporting four email domains:   @domain.net, @domain.org, @domainmail.university.edu, and @domain.university.edu.   We want to phase out two of these domains, but provide automatic responses to senders informing them of the change.

For example, when an external email comes in for @domain.net or @domainmail.university.edu, we would like to automatically respond to the sender with an email asking them to update their contacts with the @domain.org address and still allow their original email to continue on to the recipient.

We are currently using Exchange 2000.

Any ideas on how to go about doing this?

Hi dhc96,

I wouldn't try this if i where you. I assume the mails are being send for a provider who hosts the @domain.net and the @domainmail.university.edu domains. Just ask them to do this for you. It saves you a lot of trouble and bandwidth. Else, all mails will be send to your mailserver and after that, send to the user. This costs a lot of badnwitdh and processor time, and it's not necesarry...

You should put a Content Filter, Mail Relay product in between the Internet and your Exchange Systems. I recommend Mailsweeper for SMTP

http://www.clearswift.com 

This product will allow you to setup an auto responder, so that everytime a mail comes in for the domains in question, an autoanswer would be sent out, with the new domain info.

As money is tight, I was looking for an inexpensive - or free way to do this.  Actually, I found an SMTP event sink at http://www.mapistore.com/Exchange/Sinks_and_Scripts/Review_00328_index.html that will automatically archive mail sent to a specific domain into a specific mailbox.  I can then put a rule on that archival mailbox to automatically reply back with a message informing the sender of the domain change.

Thank you for your suggestions, though.
