Exchange rule differentiating users who send to fax@domain.com

Is there a rule can be configured on Exchange server that would allow multiple users to send an internet fax from their email and the fax notification be sent to the individual email (sender) and not the general email used by the fax service.

Goal, when one user sends an internet fax from their email all users don't receive the notification, only the person sending the fax.

Hi works2011,

What fax service are you using?

Can you elaborate on what you are trying to accomplish...it's unclear to me.

eFax services will allow multiple users to send and receive through one email address buy that routing is done by the efax service not Exchange.

If that is your goal I don't see how it would be accomplished gracefully through Transport Rules or any other way in Exchange. You could definitely send out faxes via Send As delegation but inbound would be the roadblock. If you were able to get senders to add a code or unique identifier to the inbound fax email that could then be routed using Transport Rules but that is not even a good workaround let alone a solution that would be viable as a business process. The functionality would also heavily depend on the exchange version.

Anothet approach would be to setup the mailbox as a shared mailbox. That would allow users to send/receive from the single mailbox integrated in there's. This would depend on your version of Exchange as well and would not provide absolute privacy. Anyone that you grant permission to the agates mailbox would be able to see everything in the innocent and sent items folders.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi diverseit, thank you for the response. Basically I'm using internet faxing and receiving is not a problem however when there were only four people in the company they would send a fax via email and it would report back to them  (and only them) the status. This is the goal I'm trying to accomplish now with 10+ users. Unless I've overlooked something the internet fax solutions I've tested, efax, myfax, ring central, etc all have a five user send limitation. This is where my problem begins. You're correct that routing is done on their end however I haven't been able to find a way to move above the five user limitation.

With j2 global (eFax Enterprise) you can do that. You have to sign up for an Enterprise plan and if you make their quota its cheaper than eFax normal plans.
