Exchange BCC Transport Rule Problem

Hello Guys,

So I am having an issue with a BCC Transport Rule that I created.. Really it isn't an issue with the rule I dont think... Currently The rule works great and when userA receives an email userB get a copy of it sent to their mailbox... Perfect... The problem is that if userB puts his out of office assistant on then the original sender gets his OOF message which isnt good... How to stop this? In 2003 I didnt have this issue, if I chose to send copy of incoming email to another user the out of office wouldnt reply to those.. But it seems in Exchange 2010 it does... IF anyone has any ideas please let me know.

This is a known problem, and there isn't really a fix.
The only solution if this is being used for monitoring is to send the email messages to a second mailbox that doesn't have OOTO enabled on it.

That cant be correct can it? I mean it worked perfect in past versions?
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
The functionality wasn't there in previous versions.
This has been an issue since Exchange 2007 when transport rules were first introduced.

I am not in the habit of posting incorrect information. If there was a different answer I would have posted it.
