Forward Email but Preserve Original Sender's Details

Hi There,

We're using Exchange 2003 and what I'd like to do is to automatically forward or re-direct email sent to a particular mail box on our system to another mailbox on another Exchange system of our sister company.

The problem I have is that the mailbox at our sister company has to send an automatic response back to the sender upon reciept of a message .

I am concerned that I may create an infinite loop and also the response needs to go back to the original sender not the forwarding mailbox.

So I was wondering is there a way to forward or re-direct email while preserving the original sender's details rather than using the details of the forwarding mailbox.

Any thoughts please?

you should be able to open up the email account at location1 with outlook...then create a server-side rule to redirect the mail to the account at location 2...when creating the rule make sure to choose the "redirect to people or distribution lists" and make sure to uncheck the "on this machine only" and set it to do it on all mail that comes in...then test it
