Simply add an mailforwardingaddress entry in LDAP for user1. Put the value of the second person's email address (user2)and you will get a copy of emails sent to user1 without user2 knowing.

The only problem with this is that when a user sends an email with a delivery notification both recipients, original user and user to which the mail is being forwarded, will send such a report back. This way users are being notified there mail is being forwarded..

I hope this make sense I do not know how to explain otherwise

I just tested.  It just notifies as being delivered to the mailbox you specified in the to: section of your mailbox.  It is blind as to whomever it gets forwarded.

with "add an mailforwardingaddress entry in LDAP " you mean:

- Open properties of user A in Active Directory
- Open Exchange general
- Open Delivery options
- Specify the email address of user B in the forward to box

?? Because this way when user C sends an email with delivery notification to user A, both user A and B will respond to that..
