I know on E2K3 you disable system messages on your outbound SMTP connector - I don't have my hands on an E2K server at the moment, but I think you set it in the same place on the older version. Be sure you don't disable this on a connector that is used internally, or you could break all sorts of things. You should probably try to make sure you are not using that connector for any system functions (replication for example) before you do so.

In Exchange 2000 how do I stop all read receipts from going outside the organization?
