Internal "All" Distribution List - Replied to by an outsider?!??!!?
Posted on 2006-07-12
Like most companies, we have an internal Ddistribution List on our Exchange 2003 server called "All". It includes all of our internal employees, and no one else. So.....One of our employees sent an email to this group today to schedule a company picnic. About an hour later, she got a reply from some guy who she says she does not know, and who is not an employee of our comapny. ??!!??HUH??!?!? Is this possible? How? I'm the IT Manager (and helpdesk, and Systems Admin., etc...), so I have full control over our Exchange Server. The reply wasn't so much Spam, as it was just saying "I'm really proud of that fantastic email you sent for the picnic, you must be proud of yourself".....
I'm thinking either one of our employees forwarded the email to another address and then replied as a joke, or someone someone left OWA open somewhere outside of the company or something.....
