Exchange 2010 - Send Alert if scheduled e-mail isn't sent

Posted on 2013-12-06

Hi -

i'd like to receive an e-mail alert anytime I don't receive a regularly scheduled email from a specific e-mail address.

I'm on Exchange 2010. With Outlook 2010.

I do use a program that monitors the Windows service that sends the alerts, but it isn't 100%. And, the 4 people in the IT dept don't always notice the scheduled e-mail hasn't been received.

Any suggestions?

One way to do this is..

1) set up a recurring outlook appointment on your deadline to beep at you saying that email x hasn't arrived.

 2) set up a rule in the rules wizard saying 'when email with subject/sender y arrives, run macro z'

 3) write macro z to delete today's instance of the reminder appointment.
