RightPostmaster for MS Exchange 2013/2016

Current version: 1.0.0.4

Purpose

Consider an Exchange server that 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 [email protected], then the sender address of this NDR is always [email protected]in0.com. RightPostmaster for Microsoft Exchange 2013/2016 application can correlate NDR with domains, so that a NDR related to domain2.com will be sent from [email protected], and a NDR related to domain3.com will be sent from [email protected]

Benefits
