Redirect rule changes TO and CC
Posted on 2010-09-06
We use an Exchange 2007 SP3 Mailbox Server and Transport Hub.
A user has set up an Outlook rule to redirect all emails that arrive in one mailbox ("A") to another mailbox ("B"). The idea is to keep the original sender and recipients (therefore Redirect and not Forward).
In mailbox B, the email arrives with the following information:
- From: the original sender (this is OK)
- To: the address of mailbox B (this is not OK - the original recipient(s) are not listed anymore)
- CC: empty (this is not OK - the original recipient(s) are not listed anymore)
I have setup the same redirect rule for a mailbox on our old Exchange 2003 SP2 server, and here the redirected email shows the original To and CC recipients.
I believe this was the case in Exchange 2007 SP2, too, but cannot verify it anymore.
Does anyone know if this a bug (or new "feature") in Exchange 2007 SP3, and if there is a patch for it?
I know that I could setup auto-forward rules on the Exchange server, but I would like to have the users handle the forward rules themselves via Outlook rules.
