Company A had 4 employees no longer with the company. Also, all 4 mailboxes from the exchange server 2000 have been deleted. I continue to get incoming email messages forwarded to the Administrators INBOX.

How do I stop incoming email messages for these employees no longer with compant even after deleting user accounts with email addresses.

See example:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      Mtg. rates going  up. Act now. As low as 3.25% bunyan
      Sent:      8/12/2004 12:46 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      firstname.lastname@company.com on 8/12/2004 11:58 AM
            The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to.  Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.
            <servername.company.com #5.1.1>

There is no way to stop external people from sending mails to these deleted accounts. Just as same as you can't stop spammer from spamming.
