Good evening!

I am thinking that read receipts are more an Outlook issue than an Exchange

issue but wanted to ask here.

We have a client who is secretly having us forward all e-mails sent to

"PersonX" forwarded to the CEO (and then sent - via rule - to a specific

sub-folder of his Inbox). Additionally, I have set up a Transport Rule to

forward all outbound e-mails that "PersonX" sends to the CEO.

The rule is very basic....

1) check messages when they arrive

2) from people or distribution list (then select "PersonX")

3) move it to the specific folder (then navigate to the sub-folder that I

created)

4) no exceptions

5) enable rule | run now

Two questions:

1) For the outbound e-mails (that are being forwarded to the CEO via the

Transport Rule) - will the rule that I sent work (read: forward to the

sub-folder that I created)?

2) what happens if the user - who is suspicious that something is going on -

requests a Read Receipt? If the CEO is not one of the people to whom the

original e-mail is sent, yet she gets a read receipt from him are we busted?

Thanks,

Cary

You're right. They are.

1) It should. And that rule should fire server-side, before Outlook sees

the message.

2) Tell the CEO to read the message in the preview pane (and configure

Tools > Options > Other > Reading Pane to block read receipts) or load one

of those add-ons to Outlook that block read receipts. Forwarded messages

are new messages and don't carry the original read receipt request, so you

should be safe there.

Ed,

As always, Thank you. We have already turned off the read receipts for

the CEO (just out of GP). Thanks!
