Which version of Exchange? If Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 then you can do recipient filtering. You need to enable tar pit as well. http://www.amset.info/exchange/filter-unknown.asp For other versions or where Exchange is not your primary receiver of SMTP traffic then you need to use a product that has LDAP lookup. I believe GFI Mail essentials does, as does Vamsoft ORF, there will be others.
