Transfer all unknown email receipients to a user

Answered Question

Hi,

We've had some major Exchange issue and needed to start from scratch (yeah I know...)

Anyway, since I don't have all the email addresses that were previously configured in the dead Exchange server, I was wondering if I could transfer all the unknown email receipients to my email address with the Cisco Spam Blocker. Right now, if I check in the Message Tracking utility, I see that some receipients get the following message : Receiving aborted by sender "Receiving aborted by sender " but I know it's because they are sending to an invalid email address.

If I could receive all those emails, I would be able to monitor which emails are still missing and would recreate them in Exchange after..

Thanks for your help!

Matt

I have this problem too.

The blocker is simply attempting to deliver based on what the email headers tell it to deliver to. Since these emails are awaiting delivery to the exchange, they are simply held on the blocker until it can pass off to the exchange. That said I do not believe there is a way to modify those emails so they are delivered to a different recipient. I would say the next best bet is to look through your message tracking and keep an eye  on the "TO:" field and see if you see addresses that are not in your list.

Hello Robert,

What can I say... The solution was indeed so simple that I couldn't see it

We manage to find all the email addresses we needed by monitoring the device, but your idea would have made it so much simpler...

I'll remember this if I ever come across a similar situation.


Thanks again Robert for your great input
