  • Redirect mistyped emailaddresses to POSTMASTER-mailbox

    I want to redirect all the messages that arrive on my Exchange 2000 server and which are not correctly typed, or have an almost correct emailaddres but 1 character missing to one specific mailbox (postmaster for example).
    It is my intention to filter out the bad messages and in some cases to forward the messages to the persons to whom it should have been sent. And maybe to inform the sender with a message stating that the emailaddress he used is not totally correct and is missing 1 character perhaps.

    many thanks in advance..

    So you want all NDR's sending to a single mailbox?

    1. In ESM, navigate to Servers -> Protocols -> SMTP.
    2. Right click Default SMTP Queue, select Properties.
    3. Go to the Messages tab.
    4. In the field titled Send Copy of Non-Delivery Report to:, enter a valid SMTP mail address. For example: [email protected]_domain.tld

      No, that's not my intention.
      Let me explain according to an example :
      correct emailaddress = [email protected]

      When someone mistypes the emailaddress and uses [email protected] or [email protected] these emails are waiting to be delivered in the queue.
      I wonder if it is possible and how I should configure to redirect these emails with "almost" correct emailaddresses to 1 postmaster mailbox.

      Hopefully this is more clear to you ?
      I'm sorry for the complex explanation...

        Ok i think i understand. Anything before the @ sign will not be picked up by your e-mail server. There is nothing you can do about that. After the @ sign will be picked up the dns resolution.
