forward rule for undeliverables is not working

Hi all!

We have a strange problem:
A forward rule is working for nearly all incoming mails.
But there are mails, which can't be forwarded (it is not important if
its a flat forward or not). These mails are typically mails to inform,
that a mail could not be delivered, for example they are from

From: Mail Delivery System <MAILER-DAEMON@****>

I couldn't find a pattern until now.
In the POA - LOG file I can see, that the forward rule is executed, but
the forwarded Mail is not transferred to MTA/GWIA.

Has anyone seen something like this?

Thanks in advance
Wolfgang

Hi Wolfgang,

What conditions have you defined in your rule? For example, are you selecting the FROM option or the SUBJECT option?

Please let us know.

Cheers,

Hi Wolfgang,

Please ignore my post above. I have found this: Bug 818293 - Rule-based forwarding of undeliverable messages does not work

This bug is evident in GroupWise 2012.

Actually, no. This bug is closed as "invalid" (means it was never
2fixed"), because it's not a bug, but working as designed. If
undeliverable notifications would be forwardable in rules, that would
potentially create havoc with mail loops.
