Notes forward (not copy) to include original sender’s name

Outlook Public Folders
We are migrating from Exchange to Lotus Notes and for a while will need to keep our Public folders in Outlook. We require having certain messages that arrive in our Notes mail to be forwarded to our Outlook mailbox with the original sender’s email address in the ‘From’ field. Our users currently do a forward individually for each of their specific messages even though the sender uses a subject line that denotes which public folder the message should be populated in to. Thinking we could automate this since it occurs numerous times a day, we tried to set up a mail rule in Notes to do this. However, Notes limits us to using a 'copy to', which arrives in Outlook as a message from the Notes user, not the original email sender. So does anyone know how we can configure Notes to do a true forward of an email based on subject to be forwarded to another email address while retaining the original sender's email address in the 'From' field?

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

The only way to do this is to programe an agent on the server. It will track the message with specifid subject, or message or user as you want and forward it to where you want it. It will be a real forward. But this is not native in Domino you need to write the agent in make it run on the server. It is not verry long to do probably .5 a day.

I would like to just further add to the above comment. While what is stated is true, another option would be to use the COM interface provided by Outlook in a “Before Mail Arrives” agent, and just drop the email in the Shared Folder programmatically.
