Forward a copy of all emails to all users, but preserve the "To" data
Posted on 2006-05-18
I have a problem with trying to set up a particular email configuration using Exchange Server (2003).
Basically, the client wants all incoming emails (all picked up from a catch all mailbox info@...) to be collected by everyone in the office. I.e. everyone gets their own individual copy of all emails. NOT a shared mailbox, this would not work, as individual users delete/keep different emails depending on the individual importance to them. Each user has their own email address (e.g. fred@ , jane@ etc) But they are all caught by the catch all.
This is only a small team of users (5) and they had this setup with their old email system (pre-exchange) and it worked very well for them so they want to continue in this way.
I managed to setup a single mailbox on exchange which my pop-collector forwards all emails to, and then setup a rule on this mailbox to forward all mails in that mailbox to a distribution list that contained all of the users. So far, so good. However, when the email arrives in the users inbox, the "to" value displayed is, of course, the name of the distribution list and NOT the address or name of the original recipient.
Just to give you the full info, the Pop connector I am using is PopCon, and does have the ability to deliver mail correctly to indivdual exchange mailboxes based on the to address.
How can I achieve this kind of setup with exchange?!
Any help is very much appreciated.
