Forward/Redirect NDR in Exchange 2003

Im trying to forward Non Delivery Reports (NDR) from an exchange mailbox to a public folder using server side rules through Outlook 2003. The rule is basically, if the message has undeliverable in the subject, forward it to an email address and delete it. Exchange recognises the email and deletes it but it never gets forwarded. Ive tried using redirect (even to another mailbox), tried using 'Has the reports form' instead of matching by subject. It just doesnt work as a server side rule. If i leave the outlook client open and choose 'move to folder' (matching either by subject or form) the rule processes the messages fine (as its client side), it just wont run as a serverside rule and auto-forward. Has anyone else tried to do something like this and run into this problem ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Rules to move things to public folders will always be client-side because they have to authenticate. What you might try is mail-enabling the public folder, then forwarding the NDR as an e-mail message to that e-mail address. Make sure you give Anonymous accounts contributor permissions to the public folder.

I’ve never tried that so I can’t guarantee it will work, but in theory it should.

    Ive tried mail enabling the public folder, ive even tried to send it to another mailbox but no joy. Interesting idea about forwarding as an attachment but that diddnt work either (im forwarding to myself and the public folder email)
