Make incoming messages anonymous.

I need to make a mailbox for suggestions, but need to make sure the sender remains anonymous. Is this possible with Exchange 2013?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What you could do is the following...
- Create another mailbox called "Anonymous"
- Provide all users Send As permissions on this mailbox (or specific users if you want to isolate this)
- You can then set the "Suggestions" mailbox to only accept messages from this "Anonymous" email

You can also check out the KB below which will outline this with more detailed steps.

As far as I am concerned, it isn't possible to have an anonymous account on Exchange.
With proper auditing it is easily traced who sent the email.

What I have suggested in the past is to have a form hosted externally that sends the email to the suggestions mailbox. Even with web logs, it would just show as coming from your external IP address.
