Configure Exchange 2003 to scan for messages from specific senders and forward to a mailbox
Posted on 2007-10-03
We have a lot of e-mail messages that come in from various Unix servers. Currently, we use sendmail to send these messages to an Exchange 2003 server. Each messages comes from a variety of machines, the e-mail addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org
We want all of these messages to go to a single administrators mailbox. The To: part of the message is not configurable, the messages are sent by various unix jobs. Sendmail sends the message to our Exchange server via the MX record.
When the messages go out from the Unix boxes, both the To: and From: are email@example.com. Is there any way to configure Exchange SMTP to look for messages from specific senders and forward only those messages to a single mailbox on the server? Similar to a rule that you can set in Outlook Client? Right now, we would have to create 189 mailboxes for each of the servers and then try to setup forwarding on each box. This would be an administrative nightmare.
Appreciate any help
