I have a crazy person randomly emailing employees and threating them. I need to be able to filter inbound mail and search for key words  then tag the mail and forward to a group. Any thoughts? I have the following to work with Exchange 2007, ASA 5510 with content security scanning and NAI Groupshield... thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions...

Hi There,

Not 100% sure if this will achieve it, but you may try and use the built in Sender Filtering in Exchange 2007. If you don't have an edge transport server, you can follow the below to enalbe it on an existing server.

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/security-message-hygiene/exchange-server-2007-spam-filtering-features-without-using-exchange-server-2007-edge-server.html

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks

Russ

Ryan I have a better idea.

Create a transport rule here - check the guide here.

http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2006/12/12/431879.aspx

What you need to do is this:
new Transport rule

From people > crazy@person.com

Silently drop the message
Redirect the message to address >> Crazypersonsboss@domain.com
You can use your imagination here
Silently drop / bounce etc.

Sunny,

the Silently Drop option, does that allow a copy to continue on to the intended recipient? I need the filter to redirect to a alternale mailbox while not alerting the crazy sender to what is going on...? I am using the redirecthe message to address option currently...?

silently drop = drops the message, doesnt route it anywhere.

If you want the email to get redirected, then Redirect the message to address option.
Do not drop it.
