How Exclaimer Address Tagging for Exchange works:

Normally Microsoft Exchange does not allow any tagged email address. I am using Matt@MSExchangeGuru.Local and John@MSExchangeGuru.local ids to demonstrate Email address tagging. When any email sent to Matt-Shopping@MSExchangeGuru.local, exchange server looks for the email address and bounce back as there is no email id found on the server. Once Exclaimer Address Tagging for Exchange is installed on Exchange server the software installs a transport agent on the server. If an email is sent to Matt-Shopping@MSExchangeGuru.local, the transport agent on the Exchange server modifies the message envelope (includes sender and recipient address) by changing the email id from Matt-Shopping@MSExchangeGuru.local to Matt@MSExchangeGuru.Local before the message reaches the Exchange and email will deliver to the mailbox normally. Important thing is, when the Transport agent modifies the message, it leaves the message headers untouched. With this still the recipient can still see that the message is addressed to Matt-Shopping@MSExchangeGuru.local and user can create an outlook rule filter these emails from his corporate emails.

The tagged email addresses can be added to blocked address list when these addresses are no more required. Once any address is added under Blocked addresses list the transport agent will ignore. The Blocked address tab will provides an option to add and remove the tagged addresses. We can also import from CSV option when there are more address needs to be blocked. The CSV file should be saved on a local drive or on a network drive and it should contain complete tagged address in one line. Once the email addresses are added click on apply to changes to take effect.

Exclaimer Address Tagging for Exchange will be an essential tool for Address tagging for exchange and for the safe communication in modern world.
