Outlook 2003 (or Exchange 2003): Automatically coptying someone on outbound email

Not open for further replies.

Chuck Lavin


I have a request to set up a particular user on an Exchange 2003 account

(using Outlook 2003) so that all her outgoing email is copied to another


I haven't been able to figure out how to set this up in Exchange. Can this

be done there?

In Outlook, the best I was able to do was set up a rule to automatically cc

all outbound email to this other user. But I don't really want this user to

show up on the email's cc line. Is there a way to set this up so that the

email is bcc'd to the user instead?

And I really would rather not do this from Outlook. Outlook already warned

me that I had created a client-side rule. So the rule won't apply if this

user sends email through OWA, which is a possibility here.




I think you cannot do a user based journaling in Exchange 2003, but if you are using Exchange 2010 you can do a user based journaling and can also make use of Transport RulesPlease remember to click Mark as Answer on the post that helps you, and to click Unmark as Answer if a marked post does not actually answer your question.

You'll have to create a seperate store and move only that mailbox to it and use message journaling. In Exchange 2003, journaling is by the store, so that is your only option if you do not want to use Outlook rules.

Note that message journaling will capture all mail, inbound and outbound..

Otherwise, 3rd party software


or upgrade to a newer version of Exchange.
