Using delivery options forwarding without getting auto-replies
Posted on 2006-12-01
Exchange Server 2003 - Outlook 2003
Supervisor requests to receive a copy of one user's in-coming e-mail messages for monitoring purposes. This was done by listing the Supervisor in the Delivery Options / forwarding address: on the user's mailbox account and indicating that messages should be sent to both the forwarding address and the mailbox. The Supervisor is gone for a couple days and so turns on her Out-Of-Office auto-reply. People within the agency that send a message to the user receive an auto-reply from the Supervisor.
How can I get a copy of user's messages to be delivered to the supervisor without initiating the auto-reply from the supervisor's account? Is there a rule I can create in Exchange to do the same thing as the delivery option forwarding that will by-pass any out-of-office replies? Any changes would have to be done on the server as I do not want to have to go to the user's computer and make configuration changes.
