Subject: [exchangelist] Not acceppt mail noexistinguser@xxxxxxxxxxxx


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!
