I need to set up a Hub Transport Rule in Exchange 2007, which copies all mails to/from a specific domain to a special account.

This is no problem for incoming mails, as i can use the rule "when the From address contains @testdomain."
With this i catch all mails, send both to @testdomain.com, @testdomain.dk etc...

But how can I set the equivalent Hub Transport Rule for outgoing mails? It can be in the To.., CC... and BCC...

Hello,

You should be able to do this by using the condition 'When a message header contains specific words'

Hi David.

Yes that did work - but only for To and CC (with 2 seperate rules).
But not for BCC.

How does this rule function? Is that a scan of the header for the word "To" or is their some kind of predefined?

Oh sorry, the BCC details aren't actually added to the message headers so it isn't an ideal solution.

I'll let another expert comment to see if they have a solution that will work with BCC as well.

I suppose if you look at the header information of one of the inbound messages you are targeting you would be able to identify the sender by domain name, server (host) name, IP address and/or return path.  Using that information you would be able to create a condition-based rule to forward/copy inbound messages to the special account.

For the outbound messages, as was stated by David, blind copies are unavoidable and unmanageable with transport rules.  That's why there is journaling--which captures all message traffic.

But back on topic ... For outbound mail to a specific domain, create a second transport rule to forward/copy those outbound messages to the specified domain to the special account.

Hope that helps.
