Create exchange side rule for distribution group
Posted on 2014-11-12
I'm querying if an Exchange side rule can be created for a newly created distribution group. What i'd like to accomplish if possible is the following:
(1) When an end user sends an email to the distribution group, the exchange side rule checks to see if a certain sub folder exists in each group members mailbox (of distribution group). If not, the rule creates the sub folder
(2) The email sent to the distribution from step 1 above is automatically routed into the mentioned subfolder from step 1 above and marked as 'Unread' and a dialog box pops up with a message that email received (descriptive subject that recipient knows email has been sent to that group)
Are the above steps possible as an Exchange side rule. I'm curious as it would eliminate us from having a client side (outlook) rule on each users mailbox and Exchange rule would be centralized. Thanks.
