Exchange 2010 message forwarding

Greetings everyone,

This is a bit complicated so bare with me. I have 2 mail boxes, 1 for user A and 1 for user B.

I've configured exchange to forward a copy of all messages sent to user A, to user B as well.

In user B's outlook, I created a rule that moves all of the user A copied emails to a folder named user A's email.

My problem is with users B's inbox. Now, when someone sends a message to user A and CC's user B, the new message only appears in the "user A's email" folder in user B's outlook, and never in user B's inbox. Almost as if the message was not sent to user B, only user A.

Does that make sense to anyone? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This is correct if your setup is as you described.

The message to User A with User B CC'd still triggers the set of events. So, the mail will hit user B twice - the original where he is CC'd and the copy that is sent from user A. Outlook will process these as 1 message and throw them into the USER A folder.

What you need to do is add the exception (except if my name is in the Cc box) and then test it out.
