Mail routing (rules) to Public Folder - 4.Dec.2007 6:50:46 AM

I was hoping that someone could advise me on some functionality that I require to assist us in managing our mailbox.  I have no experience in Exchange server, but am interested in learning more about what functioanlity is available.

Would it be possible to setup the below 'system' within Exchange server?
Below is the tree structure for a public folder

Quote Requests
Customer 1
                       Mail In
                       Mail Out
Customer 2
                       Mail In
                       Mail Out
Customer 3
                       Mail In
                       Mail Out

A mail address or list would then be setup e.g. quotes@mycompany.ie and customers would mail that address when they require a quote.  Rules should then move the mails into the relevant customer Mail In box based on the mailing address that it is sent from.  Moving from the Mail In to the Mail Out would then be a manual function within our team.

Is this something that could be done in Exchange?  Would it be possible for our team to then have access to maintain the public folder structure?

Kind Regards,

Exchange 2007 would do this out of the box with its Transport rules. But with Exchange 20003 without using Sinks, you best option is to create a user and a mailbox that receives mail for quotes@mycompany. Than using the Outlook 2003 rules create a server side rule that re-directs (not forward) the mail to the relvant public folder based on your e-mail address requirement.

Just make sure you Mail Enable your Public folder so that outlook can e-mail to them via its rules.
