I have exchange server 5.5 running and need to find a way to allow all email to a domain to be delivered to administrator without sending a NDR to the sender.
For example I have a mailbox dan.winters@tdk.co.uk
which if anyone emails exactly then I get it but if someone emails ddanwwinters@tdk.co.uk they get a NDR I want them to not get an NDR and this message or any message that does not have a specific mailbox entry to be delivered to Administrator and no NDR send to the sender! this maybe called a catch all?
Help!!

You can setup the postmaster account, or whatever account you want, to receive a copy of the NDRs that are sent back out to the senders.
I think that's the best you can do.

IMC is what it was called in Exchange 4/5.
With v5.5, it's now called IMS.
NDRs will get sent to the sender by default.
I don't think there's anyway of turning them off, although a copy is always sent to the postmaster account, which you can control to your heart's content.
If you feel this is affecting performance, then put IMS on a seperate Exchange box, or perhaps use an intermediary SMTP host between Exchange and the Internet so that that host bears the load.

Thanks Tim
the problem is we have a web publishing packages that generates email addresses for each press release submited to the site like 239876jh@tdk.co.uk and the user is getting a NDR although we are getting the mail messages is there a way of putting a catch all email address in one of the users mailboxes?
this used to be a default on our last email systen that ran on UNIX.

Sounds like you need to stop this at source.
What web publishing package do you use ?
Can't you turn off this mail sending feature ?
