I would appreciate any knowledge you could share on this subject.

I need to set up a mail flow forwarding rule at the Office 365 Exchange server admin console in the Office 365 Admin portal.

The purpose is to forward mail to a specific address at our CRM provider (Highrise) which will attached all communication sent to and from users in our customer service department within the given contacts CRM account/profile.

Here is a sample of the email address we would need to forward all inbound and bcc all outbound from a list of specific Office 365 mail users.

Sample forward and bcc address: dropbox@33880432.mycompany.highrisehq.com

I would like to do this at the server level not with forwarding or a user level mail processing rule.

Your assistance with that the mail flow rule for the forwarding (inbound) and the bcc (outbound) would be greatly appreciated.

Great Information Vasil.

Outside of Journaling any suggestions on how to set up the mail flow rules for this.

Journaling will be the best option here, other than that you can create rules with the relevant forward/BCC action. There's a very detailed comparison between the two, with examples, here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2010/01/28/interception-and-redirection-of-messages-using-transport-rules-or-journaling/

What you need is the redirect or BCC in the mail flow -> rules section and tag the source header with your  specific address,

i do this since users send email to ME@domain instead of support@domain so i redirect/cc to support on server level.

I will use a combination of both journaling and transport rules
