Transport Rule for NDR's

I know that Exchange 2003 does not have Transport rules, but I am trying to create something server side to catch all System Messages, NDR's, etc. and move them to a general mailbox. Can this be accomplished?

You would need to define the mailbox for each type of system message as settings related to each system related event is maintained separately. For NDR you can use
Set-TransportConfig –GenerateCopyofDSNFor 5.1.4, 5.2.0, 5.4.4, 5.4.6, 5.4.8

You can capture all NDR's and forward it to one email address.

Exchange 2003
> Admin Groups
> Servers
> Server name
> protocols
Right click properties > Default SMTP Virtual Server
Messages Tab
Send copy of NDR to >

Enter your email address.

I am not sure if this is a good process, as it's kinda like a spam-dump box attractor.
You are opening yourself up to backscatter and NDR spam's.

System Messages > not sure if you can create a catchall for that.
We did as Sunnyc7 described for years.  If you have SPAM filtering it shouldn't be bad but you should set a limit to this mailbox size.

I used it to capture emails bounced from full mailboxes.  That part doesn't work for E2k7 though.

But the option says to send a "Copy" to an email address. Does this mean the intended recipient still gets the NDR? The problem is that one user is getting spammed with NDR's and Outlook rules are not processing them for some reason. So I wanted to create something that would catch it at transport level if possible without the end user receiving the NDR.
