I've never seen Exchange deliver an E-mail more than once to a user; no
matter how many times the name is entered.  Even when the user is in several
Distribution Groups, they only get one instance of the E-mail.  I WILL
stipulate that I'm using Exchange 5.5 and don't know what changes may have
been made to 2k and 2k3.

Posted this a week ago, not a single response... anyone?


Hi all,


One of our users frequently CC's emails to a distribution list with about
200 members  and sends the mail To just one address which also is a member
in that distribution list.


Is there any way to get the server to not deliver the message twice to the
recipient that is in the To and CC automatically? 


We need something according to this logic:


If To address is in CC address, remove that CC address from the CC field.


Our users were able to do that manually before using Outlook, which would
expand the user groups, so the individual could be removed from the expanded
list. Now they're using Outlook Webmail, and that doesn't seem to work any


Is that possible?
