Forwarding non-delivery reports to external alias in Exchange 2007

We have a problem setting up a email redirect for a mailing list provider.

The mailing list provider is using their server to send out marketing emails, using "newsletter@ourcompany.com" as a sender address. In order to track down non-existent addresses etc, they want us to redirect all messages coming to "newsletter@ourcompany.com" to "tracking-email@maillistprovder.com". I've done it using the "Mail contact" functionality in Exchange 2007, but the problem is that NDRs are not forwarded. Out-of-office notifications, test emails are all forwarded out fine, it's just non-delivery reports that are not. When I check message tracking, it only shows a "RECEIVE" line and nothing else happens, so I suspect that Exchange is processing the message internally instead of forwarding it on. Is there a way to make Exchange forward those reports as well?

Have you at some point disabled NDRs on your hub transport, most likely to eliminate scatterback spam?

You may have to create another transport rule with condition as "Subject contains Undeliverable" or any common word that you find in those NDRs and redirect those messages.
