Exchange 2010 rule for emails coming in from outside the organization

Hi all,

I created a rule in Exchange 2010 HT that prepends subject line for all emails coming in from outside the organization. The rule is working fine. But we have our internal solarwinds monitoring server that sends an email whenever a server goes down or gets rebooted and emails from solarwinds are getting their subject lines prepended which probably means that for the Exchange server, those emails qualify as coming in from outside the organization.

Any idea why is that happening ? That server is using an email address to deliver email alerts.

Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Yes. It was a dummy email address but after I had this issue, I created a mailbox for that email address but still same issue.

did you try adding an exception?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Yes. I added that email address to the exception and it worked. But I just wanted to know why the server would regard that email address as external ?
