I am using Exchange 5.5 with the Internet Mail Service dialling an ISP and
collecting all the mail for our domain (e.g ourdomain.isp.co.uk), at regular
intervals. I have one user who would like to check his email from outside
the organisation at evenings and weekends. If he dialled into the ISP
himself, he could check his mail that way out of office hours, but only if
Exchange didn't get there first. Exchange needs to collect email for others
in the office who work weekends etc. so telling it only to get all the email
during normal office hours is not a solution.
I could redirect all email for this one user to another internet email
account, but then when in the office, that account would have to be checked
instead of the exchange one, and this could lead to issues of duplication
Without granting this user dial in access to the server where Exchange
resides (or any other server for that matter), is there any way of telling
Exchange to forward his mail at certain times, or not to pick it up from the
ISP in the first place? All users share the same format of address
particular address to left on the ISP's server.
This user (my boss), wants this to be as simple to use as poss, or am I just
being paranoid not letting anyone dial in to our servers?
Any suggestions gratefully received.
