Thanks thought about that but it's kind of hard to do that once you spend the 
money.

ok, so, to clarify, you have a spam system already, that catches spam and 
puts it into a mailbox for you to check over, but you are saying that it 
catches spam destined for mailboxes that no longer exist, yet its shunted to 
your catch-all mailbox and just clutters it up, making looking for false 
positives an even harder task.

i hear ya.

unless your spam system supports checking exchange for existance of mail 
account or not, then you're stuck.

you might consider dumping current spam solution for one that is better 
integrated with exchange.

amal ;)
