RightPostmaster for MS Exchange 2000/2003


Updated: 15-June-2004
See also ChooseFrom for Exchange 2000/2003 application
Purpose

Suppose you have the following situation:
an Exchange 2000/2003 server hosts multiple mail domains, e.g. domain1.com, domain2.com,domain3.com. The Exchange server is a member of the Active Directory domain ad.domain0.com. If the Exchange server generates a Non-Delivery Report, for example because someone has sent a message to wrongaddress@domain2.com, then the sender address of this NDR is always postmaster@ad.domain0.com.
RightPostmaster for MS Exchange 2000/2003 application can correlate NDR with domains, so that a NDR related to domain2.com will be sent from postmaster@domain2.com, and a NDR related to domain3.com will be sent from postmaster@domain3.com.
Application is a transport event sink.

Benefits

Installation

On your Exchange server computer:
1. Select (or create) a user account that is a member of the local Administrators, Domain Admins and Domain Users security groups.
2. Log on as that user.
3. Create C:\Program Files\RPM\ directory.
4. Download RPM_demo.zip archive file to C:\Program Files\RPM\ directory and extract all files.
5. Run C:\Program Files\RPM\regSink.bat.

Testing

Lets assume you have two e-mail domains hosted by your Exchange server: domain1.com amd domain2.com. Make sure the addresses wrongaddress@domain1.com and wrongaddress@domain2.com are not exist in your Active Directory.
1. Create a free test account on Yahoo (http://mail.yahoo.com).
2. Using Yahoo web mail interface, send e-mail from yourtestaccount@yahoo.com to your first unexisting address wrongaddress@domain1.com
3. After a while you will receive a non-delivery report from postmaster@DEMO.domain1.com
4. Send e-mail from yourtestaccount@yahoo.com to your second unexisting address wrongaddress@domain2.com
5. After a while you will receive a non-delivery report from postmaster@DEMO.domain2.com

I have tested RightPostmaster with Exchange 2000 SP1/SP2/SP3 on MS Windows 2000 Advanced server.

Uninstallation

1. Run C:\Program Files\RPM\unRegSink.bat
2. Delete C:\Program Files\RPM\ directory.

About this demo version.

RightPostmaster demo version always adds "DEMO." after @ to postmaster's e-mail address in a NDR.
So, if you send a message to wrongaddress@domain1.com, you receive a NDR from
    postmaster@DEMO.domain1.com
Full product version will generate the following NDR originator address:
    postmaster@domain1.com
