I would like to receive a copy of every email sent from within my organization to our external software vendor.  If I set up a custome receipient (support@softwarevendor.com) and put my mailbox in the 'delivery a copy to' box, will I capture all emails sent to this address?

Hi lovingatx,

You can do this natively with Journaling -> http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/2003/library/journaling.mspx

This will also send a compy of all INBOUND mail as well, however, you could get more selective with something like this -> http://www.ivasoft.biz/sj.shtml

The real question is, why would you ever want to do this?  You are going to have almost double your traffic, and are REALLY trusting you vendor.

no he won't (not if done correctly anyway),,, he simply asked to basically automatically CC every email sent to a particular domain to a certain mailbox.  that will not create ANY more network traffic at all.

First, sending a copy would double traffic, as it is different to CC'ing (it is another copy of the mail, not another recipient)

But more importantly, I have totally misunderstood the question.

I thought the question was how do I forward a copy of ALL outbound mail to an external address, which isn't the question at all.

In which case, mikeleebrla is correct, this is not going to work natively, you will need 3rd party software
