  • Transport Rules not working?

    I have a single Exchange environment with some simple Transport Rules to redirect an email containing specific text pattern in the subject line to another user. The rules were working fine for a couple weeks and suddenly they have stopped working? So far I have deleted the rules and recreated them from scratch, restarted the Transport service with no luck. Not sure what else to do?

    Anyone have any ideas here? I cant figure this out for the life of me. Just a simple Transport Rule.

    mail sent to 'user1' with a text pattern of 'test' redirect to 'user2'

    not working....?

      So I did some more investigating and apparently transport rules do not apply to mailboxes that are forwared to another user? As soon as I took the Forward off it started working? Anyway round this?

        Not that I am aware of, because the forward fires first.

          So you want an email sent to user 1 with subject test to be re-directed to user2, and user2s mailbox is forwarded to user3?

            Ended up taking the forward off of user3's mailbox and solely used transport rules to direct email to the correct mailbox. And the fixed the issue...
