Preventing a user from sending email to a specific email address

Management has asked me to prevent a user from sending email to a specific email address.  I know that I can prevent email from that site from coming in using message filtering, but I don't know of any way to prevent email from going to the address.  Is there an answer to this?  I'm using Outlook 2000 on an Exchange 5.5 system using NT 4.0.

Thanks
Dave Laniel

I'd suggest contacting the administrator of the domain which the user is attempting to send to and asking them to block the specific smtp address for your user sending the e-mail from being delivered.  If you have any type of smtp gateway such as, Trend Micro Scan mail between your mail server and the internet, you can capture the e-mail there.  Or, if you forward e-mail to an ISP mailbag for delivery from Exchange, they can most likely capture them their as well.

Thanks - I assume from your comments that there is no way to do this from our Exchange side.  As this address is an AOL address, I guess I'll have to contact them.

Thanks

Unfortunately from within Exchange 5.5 and E2K, there is not really a way to prevent mail from being delivered by a single users to an external account.

I guess I'll deal with it the way you suggested.  Hopefully there will be some way to do this in the future.  Thanks Again
