We have a windows 2003 exchange mail server and symantec mail security installed on the server which does the filtering.

Wanted to know as how to set a rule based on a key word.

Lets say I wanted to set a rule that any email(inbound/outbound) within our domain with a keyword  " ABCXYZ" in its subject has to be forwarded to  and then deleted.

    I have gone through the software again and again.
    I have conclude it do not have such function to forward to specifc user but it able delete the email and notify the administrator

    it do not have the ability to attach the email or forward it.

    the variable available is as below
    The list of variables you can use in the Message body box:
    %sender% = Sender of the infected item
    %subject% = Subject line of the infected item
    %recipient% = Intended recipient of infected item
    %action% = Text that represents the action that was taken as a result of the rule violation
    %policy% = Text that represents the policy in effect when the rule violation occurred
    %subpolicy% = Text that represents the subpolicy in effect when the rule violation occurred
    %rule% = Text that represents the rule in effect when the rule violation occurred
    %violation% = The type of rule violation that occurred
    %location% = Directory location of the infected item
    %attachment% = Name of the message attachment, if any
    %n% = Begins a new line
