I have a situation in which I need to be able to send a notification that email for the user has arrived in his domain.com account.  The reason is this, we do not allow folks to send sensitive informatin out over public email paths.  Consequently, when an email comes to the .doman account for our directors, we need to automaticlly send an email to their personal .hotmail accounts telling them that there is mail and that they will need to access it via outlook web access.  These individuals do not have access to normal outlook desktops so the solution will need to be exchange server based.  Thanks!

why not get them to check thier exchange email more often like thier hotmail?
I usually check my office email more than the hotmail one ...



To cut it short, exchange do not have ways to notify users for email. it can forward the email out which you do not want to.

the other way is to get them a window mobile, so email wil reach them directly.

There is no way of doing this natively, you may be able to do it with a bit of programming to create a custom transport rule but other than that no.

Hi, Chendrick.

Your best bet is probably a third-party tool like this: http://www.mapilab.com/exchange/rules/
