Forward email from OWA and keep original sender information
Posted on 2005-05-02
With Exchange 2003 and OWA, an end user can now set up an auto forward to an email address outside of the domain (and not in the address book). This is a great feature for us, but the problem is the forwarded message does not have the original sender information when it arrives at the forward email inbox.
For example, email@example.com sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pat has created an auto-forward from OWA to go to email@example.com. The email is forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, but the sender is seen as email@example.com, not the original sender. Opening the email shows the original sender, but it does make it tough to scan your inbox for emails from specific people.
I know this could be acomplished by using alternate recipeints in AD, but I would like the end user to be able to take care of these changes on their own. We are a small school and will have 150 students with this setup. I'm hoping that they can forward their school mail to an account of their choice.
Thanks for any ideas
