You can create an SMTP Event Sink to handle unresolved recipients, here is a
link from the Microsoft Knowledgebase that explains how this is done:;en-us;q315631

I personally would recommend you look at Mailbasket from

Hope this helps

I have serious amounts of junkmail in the BadMail folder at one of my
customers. The customer is Running Exchange 2000 SP3 and the Relay
protaction is fine as far as I can see!

The problem is that that the badmail foler rapidly builds up with junkmail
addressed bogusmail@xxxxxxxxxxxx, nouser@xxxxxxxxxxxx, (where mydomain is
the correct maildomain, but it can be anything before "")

The problem is that the server acceppts mail for users/mailboxes that
don't exist during the session and then wants to send an NDR. This however
results in loads of NDR's in the BadMail folder.

Is there any way of forcing Exchange to reject mail during the session for
users/mailboxes that dont exist on the system?

Many thanks in advance!
