Some of our users wanted to have their emails forwarded to their private
eamail address. To do so, I created contacts in our organization with the
private emailaddress of the users and used 'AD User properties - Exchange
General - Delivery Options' to forward all messages for that user to the
contact and checked the 'deliver messages to both forwarding address and
mailbox' checkbox. This works fine.
However, after a while I discovered that all messages that are sent from the
users private emailaddress (witch matching contact in the AD) to a recepient
in our organization are also delivered to the adminstartor mailbox. Since
some of the mails are highly confidential, this is unacceptable.
To make things really clear, here's an example.
In the organzation company.com, there's a user Mark with email address
XXXX@XXXXX.COM . There is also a contact in the AD - 'Mark Private' with
email address XXXX@XXXXX.COM . When user Mark sends a message from his home
address ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM ), to a recepient within our organization (eg.
XXXX@XXXXX.COM ), that message is delivered to Nancy's mailbox AND the
I've tested this a little further and it seems that all incoming messages
from email addresses that belong to a contact in our organization are always
delivered to the recepient AND the administrator mailbox.
This raises two questions:
1. Why does this happen?
2. Is there any way to stop this from happening?
Thx for the help.
