I am running Exchange 2007 SP2 - 1 CAS, 2 mailbox/HUB servers.  I am needing to find out how to send an alert when a speciic email address sends an email to one of my users. Is this possbile? If so, how do I do this? I have never heard of a way to do this in Exchange, but my supervisor said it was possible.

Thanks in advance.

    You may be achieve this target by writing up VB script or by using a 3rd party tool but not pretty sure. But you can log an entry in your event viewer by just creating a transport rule on your HT server. if this works for you.
