I have inherited an Exchange 2007 server with bunch of Transport Rules. One of them threw me off. What it does it supposed to forward emails from certain external client domain to specific internal addresses of teams that handle those clients. I don't understand how it's forwarded there as I need to update it. The last step in the rule is "Silently Drop the Message". How does this work and where do I change where it's forwarded to internally

I hope I'm clear

Thx

Can you share the rule screenshot, or details, secondly, if it is working, what you want to change.

the rule is working I just need it to change the destination address but I don't see it as the last step is "Silently Drop the Message" So I'm just trying to understand how that works as it's confusing. I would expect like in Outlook rules the last step would have the destination email address I could edit and be done

I assume you are confused with silently drop the message, check below kb, it explains each action.

All those addresses are stored in the Team1-Team 5 DL's you can edit those only, say if you want to add new user, add the user in those 5 DL's, you can test it adding your own account to one of them
