SUMMARY

This article describes how to create an event sink to capture all e-mail messages that are sent to a particular domain, and then direct them to a single mailbox.

Note The sample event sink described in this article redirects all e-mail messages that are sent to a domain. For information about how to create more complex event sinks, see the Exchange Software Development Kit (SDK).

Create the script files

Create the following five scripts, and then store them in a folder on the Exchange computer.

Microsoft provides programming examples for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. This article assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and with the tools that are used to create and to debug procedures. Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular procedure, but they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific requirements.

Catchall.cmd

The Catchall.cmd file calls the SMTPReg.vbs script and registers the Catchall event sink. To create this .cmd file, follow these steps:
  1. Type or paste the following code into a text editor, such as Notepad:
    cscript smtpreg.vbs /add 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingCatchAll CDO.SS_SMTPOnArrivalSink "mail from=*"
    
    cscript smtpreg.vbs /setprop 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingCatchAll Sink ScriptName d:\mec\catchall\catchall.vbs
    
    cscript smtpreg.vbs /delprop 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingCatchAll Source Rule
    						
    Note Modify the path to the Catchall.vbs file to reflect the folder location of the Catchall files.
  2. Save the file as Catchall.cmd.

Enum.cmd

Run Enum.cmd to list event sinks that are registered on the server. To create this file, follow these steps:
  1. Type or paste the following code into a text editor, such as Notepad:
    cscript smtpreg.vbs /enum |more
    					
  2. Save the file as Enum.cmd.

Catchall.vbs

The Catchall.vbs script is used to create the Catchall account. Customize this file for your Exchange Server environment.
  1. Type or paste the following code into a text editor, such as Notepad. Save this file as Catchall.vbs.

        End If
      Wend
      FixupRecipList = strFixedList
    End Function
    
    </SCRIPT>
    					
  2. Edit the Catchall.vbs file to replace occurrences of @example.com with @yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is the domain from which you want to redirect the e-mail messages.
  3. Replace all occurrences of bob@company.com with the SMTP address of the mailbox to which you want to redirect all e-mail messages for the domain that you specified in step 2.

    Note The e-mail address to which you want to redirect all mail must be from a different domain than the domain from which you want to redirect the e-mail messages. For example, if the domain that you specify in step 2 is @company.com, the e-mail address that you specify in step 3 cannot be bob@company.com. If the domains are the same, the message will continuously loop and will eventually be returned to the sender as undeliverable.

    If the recipient must have an e-mail address in the catchall domain (the domain from which you want to redirect the e-mail messages), such as bob@company.com, add an additional domain such as @company.local to the recipient policy for the user, and then add a SMTP address of bob@company.local to the user's e-mail addresses. The address of bob@company.local can then be used as the e-mail address to specify in step 3.

SMTPReg.vbs

Create a script to register the Catchall event sink. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Type or paste the following code into a text editor, such as Notepad:

  2. Save the file as Smtpreg.vbs.

Removecatchall.cmd

Create a .cmd file to remove (uninstall) the Catchall event sink if you think that you may want to remove it later. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Type or paste the following code into a text editor, such as Notepad:
    cscript smtpreg.vbs /remove 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingCatchAll
    					
  2. Save this file as Removecatchall.cmd.

    Note If you want to remove the Catchall event sink, you can do so by running Removecatchall.cmd from a command prompt.

Register the catchall event sink

  1. Verify that you have created a valid e-mail account with which to collect the redirected e-mail messages.
  2. Run the Catchall.cmd from the directory that contains the .vbs files that you created.
  3. Restart the SMTP service in the Exchange System Manager.
  4. Test the event sink by sending an e-mail message to an e-mail address in the catchall domain that you specified in step 2 of the "Catchall.vbs" section of this article. The message is delivered to the recipient mailbox with the address that you specified in step 3 of that same article section.
