  • Exchange 2003 -- forward "unknown" emails to internal account?

    Hi folks,

    I am supporting Exchange 2003 (Small Business Server edition) and need to send all incoming emails with unresolved addresses to a particular account. Is there any easy way to do it?

    Note this is not forwarding all emails to an account, just those where the address cannot be resolved.

    Many thanks!

    Hello,

    If you are interested to colect all incoming emails with unresolved addresses, configure the smtp virtual server. Usually it is the Defoult SMTP virtual server.
    (System Manager ->Administrative group ->Servers ->Your server ->Protocols ->SMTP)
    Go to the properties of the virt. SMT server and choose Messages section.
    In the Send copy of Non Delivery Report text fild type the e-mail address.

      IIRC using the NDR method also returns a "not delivered" to the sender. I am trying to have a "catch all" account to receive all emails not delivered to a legitimate address but not generate NDRs. The only related thing I can find is to forward unresolved emails to another SMTP server for processing, but that is still not the effect I am after.

        If the NDRs returned to the senders are an issue, they can be stopped. See the provided link. Also add an email address to the Send copy of non-delivery report field. In this way, the sender will not receive NDR but the original email as attachment is sent to the specified email address.
        Other Exchange built in solution it doesn't seem to exist.
        Third party software should be used.
        I think one of them is GFI MailEssentials.

            Tom (where on earth have you been???),

            You need to set up a CATCH ALL account. See:
