Can you forward an email using a Server side rule based on Subject line content?

We have an account (orders@...) that we do not want logged in 24/7.  I set up a rule to forward email to another internal account based on Subject line content, but it only works when you're logged into orders@... since its a client-only rule and can only be set up as such.  I'm not seeing how to set it up to be server-based through my Exchange System Manager, Global Settings, Message Delivery.  Is there another place to set this up?

there are 2 solution based on if you want to forward 2 one email or more

1_ from the Order User properties in exchange - mail flow settings - delivery options - forwarding address and add the second email
2_ order@... email can be assign to public folder where multiple users have permission to view

I thought of solution 1, but that forwards all email to the the other account whereas I only want to forward email that has a specific character string in the subject line.  

Solution 2 may work but I'd rather not send it to a public folder.

Are there any other options?  

Is this something that's available in Exchange 2007 or 2010?  We're upgrading in a few months
I am able to easily do this by creating a new server side rule. Follow steps mentioned on this link and you should be done: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA102276681033.aspx#3

The step I was missing was that I was "Forwarding" instead of "Redirecting" the email to the orders@... inbox.  Works like a charm now. Thanks, experts
