Instruct the 55 server not to send NDRs. It's a bit blunderbuss hence
the evolution:

In 2000 you can configure different ndr handling for different domains
In 2003 you can configure the system to drop connections that don't have
a valid Active Directory address.

I am running an Exchange 5.5 Enterprise with sp4 on a win2k server.  It
is a
single site, single exchange server in a mixed mode NT4 domain.

I usually have a bunch of outbound messages stuck in the "Outbound
awaiting
delivery" with no Originator header going towards various spam related
websites.  I manually delete hundreds of these out of the que several
times
a day.  Is there a way to configure the exchange server not to accept
any
email which has no Originator information?  I have relaying shut down
tight.
I assume that these emails are the result of either a virus on an
infected
pc here on our network or pc's with spyware loaded accidentally on them
or
something of this nature.  If there was a way to lock down the exchange
server, is there a downside to this action?

thanks,

Greg
