Please help me to understand the following request, i am very confuse with it. :---

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Hello,

 

Customer IRR will end its contract with RVP GROUP soon.
Therefore, as of the 31st of October, can you please activate an auto-reply message when email is send to following email address: irr@rvpgroup.com

Auto-reply message should read:

Dear sender,

The collaboration between Irr and RVPGROUP has stopped.

For changes or cancellations related to existing bookings, please send an email to Irr.change@rvpgroup.com

Thank you.

Next to that, can you create this new email address Irr.change@rvpgroup.com and link this to group mailbox (bb@rvpgroup.com).
 

Thank you!!!
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

************ I saw that irr@rvpgroup.com is an alias to the bb@rvpgroup.com i.e. there is a mailbox by name of bb@rvpgroup.com*******

Maybe they use bb@rvpgroup.com as a shared mailbox, so it's not a distribution group. Also, the request for creating an existing email address happens all the time. Sometimes clients have no idea which address they already requested in the past. I even had a client requesting me to create a noreply@ mailbox...

The way I would do this is remove irr@ as an alias address of bb@. Then create a email distribution group for irr@ and have that forward to bb@. Then create a transport rule to send an automatic reply to anyone who emails that particular address.

This way the shared mailbox still gets any emails sent to irr@ so nothing is missed but anyone who sends an email to bb@ also will not get an auto response for irr@. It also makes it easier for removing the irr@ address later down the line or move it if someone else needs to see emails sent to it.
