How do I route all email from a specific domain name to a single email address?

Situation: We're trying to route all incoming mail from a specific external domain (ex: thiscompany.com) to a single/group of specific email addresses within our company (ex: legal@ourcorp.com).  We're trying to route this mail to that specific address/group internally before any of those emails even reach their intended recipients.

We could simply blacklist the domain using our spam firewall, so none of our users get anything from that specific domain, but we don't want to alert said company to the fact that we're bouncing their emails. Instead we would like to screen those emails.

Setup: Windows 2003 AD environment, single Exchange server, single domain, nothing special about the environment setup that I'm aware of.

Ideally speaking you cannot perform what you are asking for, Exchange cannot perform re-direction of such sort.
You could use some third-party applications to perform this.

I assumed that MS would have built in a re-direct feature like that.  It's not much of a reach to think that if someone wanted to use the "sender filter" feature, then they might have wanted to simply have those particular emails routed to a specific mailbox, rather than be forced to dig through the Exchange server itself.

I know that there is "sender filtering", which can archive and dump messages into a default "Filter" directory.  Is there a way to change that default folder?

Exchange_GeekCommented:
Nopes there isn't any such method to filter / change any default behavior.
Even consulted few other consultants friends on to this and they too accepted that sending emails directly to a particular mailbox (even if the recipients are different, and filtering with sender address).

Unfortunately, so such way.
