Our exchange server will send bounce back messages to a sender if the address they use does not exist.  What I need is anytime the my exchange server sends a bounce back message, have that message forwarded to myself or the server administrator.  I have a kb article for internal ndr but I need the external senders.

Thanks,

-Greg

Usually Exchange 2007 does not generate NDRs to external parties.  It refuses to accept the message at all, finishing transaction early, once the recipient ID has been established, but before the message has been sent.  Any NDR that finds it's way back to the sender has been generated by the sending email server.  You can turn on SMTP logging to see this in action, and veiw the sender & recipient.

Makes sense but, I sent an invalid email address from my hotmail account.  The email address was gre@skfoodgroup.com.  The skfoodgroup.com was correct but gre does not exist.  I got the following message sent back to my hotmail account.  I want this type of message forwarded to me...

Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:

gre@skfoodgroup.com
The recipient's e-mail address was not found in the recipient's e-mail system. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please check the e-mail address and try resending this message, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

Sorry, forgot to mention that the message is coming back from From:  postmaster@skfoodgroup.com.

Can we setup a rule in the postmaster mailbox to forward or cc?

Thanks,

-Greg
