Program to trigger email, when an email is received


I have a situation as follows:
-User has two mailboxes but can (by law) only access Mailbox2 when in the office.
-Mailbox1 is the main account, linked to BES, VPN etc and is used normally
-Need a program to send an email from Mailbox2 to Mailbox1 when an email is received into Mailbox2, saying something like "You have received an email in Mailbox2 - please login to check it"

Hi dankillen,

If you use Outlook is very easy, create  a rule (Tools - Rules and alerts). New Rule from blank rule, check message when arrive, dont mark any option on next step to aply to all messages, next, mark resend to person or distribution list. You can End rule here or select more options.

Thanks.  I think your solution would end up forwarding the original email from mailbox2 to mailbox1 - this cannot happen.  The email itself, must not leave mailbox2.  

What I need is a standard/generic notifcation saying "you have new email in mailbox2" sent to mailbox1 - the user will then log in to mailbox2 directly, to collect email.  This all sounds very stupid but is unavoidable - mailbox2 holds secure email which MUST NOT leave the mailbox, be forwwarded etc.
