Autoforward a NDR to another internal address

We have an Exchange mailbox that automatically sends emails. I would like to (or rather I have been asked to) have any NDR it receives (from sending to a bad address) forwarded to another user's mailbox.

Outlook rules don't seem to treat the NDR or System Administrator message (actually if you look close, Outlook calls this message a "report") as moveable by rules, either client or server based. At least not the ones I'm creating (As message arrives with certain words (System Administrator) in the Sender's Address, forward to xuser@example.com, and/or forward messages with subject (or body) undeliverable to xuser@example.com).

Does anyone have a suggestion (besides instructing the SMTP protocol to send ALL NDRs to this poor user) of how to make this happen?

Not possible.
You cannot forward NDR messages as they are special messages. Outlook and Exchange will not allow you to do anything with them.

You also cannot have NDRs delivered to a PST file for the same reason.

I was actually able to accomplish this using an Ironport mail filter but I am assuming that is overkill for most folks. No way to do it with just Outlook and Exchange, so I guess the answer is correct.
