Forwarding mail automatically to one mailbox

Hello there,

I'm running a Windows 2003 Server SBS install with Exchange 2003 as my mail server. Basically I want all emails sent to my domain to go to one mailbox as well as whoever they were addresssed to.

For example if someone sends an email to john@blah.com that email goes to john@blah.com and all@blah.com.

Also if someone spells it wrong and sends an email to jhon@blah.com that too goes to all@blah.com.

If anyone can help me out that would be great!

Thanks,

- shaft

There is no built in way of doing it.

What you need is a catch all script.

Take a look at http://www.turbogeeks.com/utilities/default.asp - their free mail basket lite application might do what you want.

However are you sure that you want to do this?
You will receive an awful lot of spam and virus messages as ALL email addresses will be valid on your server. Where spam and virus messages are using made up email addresses you will receive them, they will not bounce or fail.

hmm ok, that answers the every email to the domain going to an email box. is it possible to route all emails on the server to one email box? (every email that has a mailbox on the server, not spam or spelt wrong addresses)

Do you want a copy of the messages?

If so you need to enable journaling.

Take a look at this page at Microsoft. It goes through the entire process.

You could combine it with the catch all trick and all messages will then be captured.

yes a copy of every mail can be forwarded to on email address.
Go to the active directory users and computers -> users -> username(who ever is the user) ->properties-> exchange general -> delivery options ->forward to and give the name of the user you want to forward the mail to.
