Undeliverable spam mail from the System Administrator clogging inbox that was never sent in the first place
Posted on 2004-11-11
A collegue of mine is receiving hundreds of emails from the system administrator in his inbox with the subject: "Undeliverable" at the begining.
The problem is that the emails are caused by sending mail to a non-existent email address. However he is not sending any emails to any of the addresses. We think there is a virus on an external computer that has his email address and is sending out hundreds of email to 'made-up' email addresses. When these email addresses get rejected then he is receiving all the Undeliverable messages in his inbox.
Is there anyway to either
1. prevent the mail at our end
2. stop the system administrator emails
3. automatically move the system administrator emails to a seperate folder.
4. any other suggestions....
I have tried setting up a rule in Microsoft office but this will not work as it says it's an internal email.
We are running Microsoft Exchange.
