BCC all incoming messages to a service mailbox

Someone told me that BCC incoming messages to a mailbox is a built-in feature of Outlook.  We are using Outlook 2003, maybe Outlook 2007 next year.  Please advise how I can do that.

    Around 70 mailboxs need to have this rule/feature.  So I need to consider a way that requires less skills of users.  A built-in rule or something like that?

    Create the rule on your PC to work as required, then Export it from within the Rules Wizard.  To do this highlight the Rule then click the Options button.  Click the Export button, and save it.  Now email the .rwz file to the users, and have them save the attachment then double click it to import it into their Outlook.

    Can I specify always fire the rule first before all other rules then .rwz carries the fire-first configuration with it?  Thanks,

    The way to do that is to move the rule to the top of the list after it has been imported.  I'm not certain if it can be placed at the top automatically.  When I tested this, the new imported rule went to the bottom of the list.

    I also made an error in what I told you above.  To import the rule you don't double click, you have to go into the Options of the Rules Wizard and import it.  We did this on a large scale at a company I used to work at several years ago, with excellent success.  You just have to give a few lines of instruction for the users.
