My company, for marketing purposes, has decided to relay messages for our clients. We are going to start selling a new efax solution and I need to have our Exchange 2003 SBS forward any messages that look like 1234567890@mydomain.com to 1234567890@fax.com keeping mailbox name and the attachment. However, all other messages, such as user@mydomain.com needs to be handled by my server.

How can I setup my server to handle this properly?

This probably should not be handled by exchange, especially 2003. if they are serious about doing this then I suggest looking at something like ironport that can handle complex filtering and re-direction. it can alter the email address as you want, and can keep the attachment and mailbox name also. it is a little expensive but you will never regret using ironport. best product we have ever used. you could also look at barracuda but make sure they can do exactly what you stated and make them prove it.

Turns out the people explaining what they want explained it wrong. They are just asking for a catchall. Thanks for your help.
