First of all - unfortunately I am not an expert concerning msexchange.
I would like to know if it is possible to define a rule where the receiver of an outgoing email is changed automatically.
In Detail this is what I need:
If someone is sending an email to
email@example.com with a subject containing e.g.
[TRACK] we do want to send the email to another receiver instead of the original one e.g.
firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important that the exchange server does not send an email to the initial receiver.
If this is not possible by checking the subject I would like to know if there is any other way to do this? For example by using suffixes in the domain
email@example.com something like this.
The purpose is that initially we wanted to send those emails to a specific server instead of sending the email at all. The server would then do some work with this email by extracting properties and saving them in a
mysql database. Unfortunately I was told that it's not possible to tell an msexchange server to connect to another server via
SMTP and forward an email etc. like described above.
That's why I am asking to do it via another postbox catching all the emails with a specific subject.
Let me give you a little more background. We do have an
iOS app for our consulting firm. With this app you are able to send
Messages to one of our consulters. So the iPad user wirtes a message from his iPad and this message will be delivered as an
For the reason that consulters do not need any third-party tools, we'd like them to use their email client to answer those emails or start new conversations with the iPad user. So that's why we need to deliver some of the emails (not every user is an iPad user) from the exchange server to our message server via (at best) smtp.
It is fairly important that the emails for the iPad users are not deliverd via email itself, but a message to the iPad.
Any hints appreciated - thanks in advance!
