I have been tasked with forwarding a DG to a Mailbox, but filtering some to other destinations.
So we have a DG (distribution Group) called 'Support' and a Mailbox called 'Helpdesk' we need to forward most support mail to Helpdesk, but filter other support mail to other destinations. I am not sure if this can be done, but I am sure someone will enlighten me.

Thanks

Jeff

Any memebr of a DL will get an email sent to it but if you want Specific forwarding then you shouls have a Shared Mailbox just for use and not expose your Helpdesk Mailbox

Thanks Rancy,
I have inherited this issue and although what you say makes perfect sense, if possible I need to find a way to make this work.

Update, I have found that running a powershell script with the exception of btinternet the rule works
 (New-TransportRule -Name 'Support' -Comments '' -Priority '0' -Enabled $true -AnyOfToHeader 'Support@xxxx.co.uk' -RedirectMessageTo 'helpdesk@xxxx.co.uk' -ExceptIfFromAddressContainsWords 'btinternet'

But, if I try to replace btinternet with 'hotmail or gmail' the rule does not work. Is there some sort of block on internet email accounts?

Thanks

Sorry didnt get you ... so the only Exclusion in your Transport rule crealy says for a Domain and to Exclude anything that has the word 'btinternet'

Rancy, this code blocks gmail and btinternet from going to helpdeak....

New-TransportRule -Name 'SupportL' -Comments '' -Priority '0' -Enabled $true -AnyOfToHeader 'Support@xxxx.co.uk' -RedirectMessageTo 'helpdesk@xxxx.co.uk' -ExceptIfFromAddressContainsWords 'gmail','btinternet'

What I need is almost the opposite, where i need btinternet and gmail to go to Helpdesk and filter out all other mail.

Hope that makes sense.

I guess your rule is working as you have said or created ... not at my lab but something like

New-TransportRule -Name 'SupportL' -Comments '' -Priority '0' -Enabled $true -AnyOfToHeader 'Support@xxxx.co.uk' -RedirectMessageTo 'helpdesk@xxxx.co.uk' -OnlyIfFromAddressContainsWords 'gmail','btinternet'

Sorry for the delay, yes the powershell script worked
New-TransportRule -Name 'SupportLapt' -Comments '' -Priority '0' -Enabled $true -AnyOfToHeader 'Support@xxxx.co.uk' -FromAddressContainsWords 'gmail','btinternet'  -RedirectMessageTo 'helpdesk@xxxx.co.uk'

Essentially you swap gmail and btinternet for the addresses you need and it works.

Thanks for all your help guys.
