I had this problem before, what you have to do is just check your logs to get 
the ip address of that computer who is sending you these emails and best way is 
to block the ip on the firewall level. Else you can go inside the exchange 
enterprise and you can put the decline filter on that Ip address

        I am running Windows 2000 Server with Exchange 2000.  My clients are 
running Outlook XP with a few 2003 clients.


        We were getting TONS of NDRs which were filling up the queues and 
bogging down the server.  The NDRs were replies to SPAM messages to 
non-existant users, etc.  It was decided to turn the NDRs off to help reduce 
the number of queues and the load on the Exchange server.  We are still getting 
tons of emails to the Bad Mail folder...which keeps filling up.  Is there a 
setting that we can enable that will prevent emails from going to the Bad Mail 
folder?  I know we could script something that will autodelete everything in 
the folder, but itâs nice to manually do it so we know whatâs going on with 
it.  Any suggestions on this?
