Prevent specific email from being delivered to iPhone, but still deliver it to Outlook.

Exchange Server 2010 14.03.0123.003

I have a VIP user who has a unique request which I have not been able to solve.

Currently (for reasons I cannot divulge, but which cannot change), User 1 (VIP) receives a certain email several times per day and has a client-side Outlook rule designed to forward the email to User 2 within our organization, and then delete the email.

We cannot set this up as a server-side rule because under NO circumstance can a read receipt from User 2 get sent to the message originator.

User 1 does not want this specific email to create a notification on his iPhone at all because he wants nothing to do with the email in the first place, his only concern is that it gets forwarded to User 2.

Is there any way I can write a server-side rule, maybe something related to the ActiveSync, that will stop messages from this specific sender from appearing on User 1's iPhone?

Thanks for the replies.  I think my user is going to abandon this quest.  Consider the question closed.

I don't think that is possible.

If you're just using the iPhone's built-in Exchange sync, then no, this is not possible. There might (I'm not sure) be an app out there somewhere that does Exchange sync and will let you set up notification rules to ignore the e-mails from this one address, but if so it'd probably be expensive.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can create a rule in outlook so that the read receipts from the user2 goes  to a folder called folderx.
On the iphone just don't sync the folder X.

A transport rule would deal with both of these issues.
If the email is the same then have a rule do the forward. Then have another rule to block the reciept.
