This should be simple but apparently I'm missing something. In Office 365, how do I set it up to send a copy of all NDR messages to a specific admin email address?

There is no catch all in EO, so you have to play with Transport rules. And none of the cmdlet you would use to accomplish this with on-prem Exchange (http://careexchange.in/how-to-copy-all-ndrsdsn-to-a-mailbox-in-exchange-2013/) are available in EO.

Transport rules is where I was trying to go. And the rules seem to work fine for other things, but I can't get the rules to work for the NDRs being sent out by the external postmaster email of postmaster@company.com. I really need a way to have my recipients alerted when an email that's too large is sent to them but rejected.

One thing you can do is change the External Postmaster Address, this is the one cmdlet that actually works in EO:

Set-TransportConfig -ExternalPostmasterAddress ndr@domain.com

Open in new window


Creating a rule against that sender should hopefully sort the issue.

Another idea, or a workaround, is to enable Journaling and configure the Journaling NDR recipient:

Set-TransportConfig -JournalingReportNdrTo catchall@domain.com

Open in new window


As I am CCed in those NDRs for one of out customers, I can guarantee you this works :)

I was pondering changing the postmaster address but was wondering if there were any caveats in doing so?
