Why is your server accepting e-mail for non-existant users?


Don't fix the symptom, fix the problem.

Subject: [exchangelist] NDRs and Bad Mail

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 it's nice to manually do it so we know what's going on with
it.  Any suggestions on this?
