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.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

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 ?
