Exchange 2013 - Adding BCC to every external email and redirect to server IP

Want to be able to add a BCC to every single outbound email (e.g. to audit@abc.com) to redirect it to a new audit server.

Been suggested to use a transport rule to add the BCC and then a send connect for the abc.com domain to point to the server IP address.

Would this work? How to do?

Hi,

it will work, but you don't need to complicate. Log to ECP --> mail flow --> rules --> add new rule

Take a look at picture attached. Set condition when some1 from inside the organization is sender (which means everyone) send email that server attach bcc to audit@abc.com.

I have tested it, and it works.

Regards,
Ivan.

Create a new send connector in Exchange. Set the destination to a smart host and use the IP address in for the relevant server and set the domain it applies to as abc.com.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi,

well just add one more condition: The sender is located Outside of Organization.  That way you have marked all sent/ received email.

How is that server going to accept email? You have some email server up on it?

Yep, the send connector will send the emails to whatever server is specified as the smart host for that domain - you can use an internal address or external address, providing that the recipient server is setup and able to accept the emails from your email server.
