Is there a way to send a "broadcast message" to a user from the server when
new mail arrives in their personal inbox?
I'm quite sure it can be done in Novell and am wondering if it can be done
in NT using Exchange.
If the user has a MAPI client running, that client can be configured to
notify him of any new mail arriving. The server will send a UDP packet out
for any client that it shows as logged on when a change occurs in that
client's logon mailbox. MAPI clients will pick this up and take appropriate
There is no way to send a more traditional network broadcast message (such
as the kind send from Server Manager) when mail arrives. That would create
an awful lot of traffic, anyway.

Have Exchange Server 5.5, and I was wondering if it is
possible to notify other users if a message comes into a
e.g. have mailbox for specific job (A)
have 4 users who relate to this job but have own
seperate mailboxes (B, C, D, E)
if A gets a message (tend to include very large
attachments), send a notification message - along lines
of "A has new message, please check mailbox" - to B, C, D,
and E so that they can then log in as A and view message.
thanks in advance,
