My company recently signed up with http://www.x-on.co.uk/
for an email to sms service. To receive an email as an sms I just have to send an email to email@example.com
.uk and the content is forwarded as an sms to the number in the email address. This works as expected when and I am happy with this.
Next I wanted to setup a distribution group in exchange to contain a number of mail enabled contacts with their firstname.lastname@example.org
k. We are using this system as an alert for one of our clients products and when triggered an email is sent to a mailbox on our exchange box. I want to setup this mailbox to forward a copy of any incoming emails to the distribution group which again is not a problem.
Now when I link the two together I get my issue. From looking at the history of failed and sent sms messages I can see that x-onsms.co.uk is rejecting the emails sent from the ditribution group because they still contain "Display names" of the distribution group or original mailbox.
Is there a way to config exchange to forward email from a mailbox removing the display name (I have already played around with preserve name in global settings) and then removing the display name of the distribution group and just sending an email to the contacts via their email address only as this is what is causing the sms messages to fail, they don't under from "mailbox domain" mailbox@domain or "distrib group" email@example.com
m to "a contact" firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
