Changing the "This message will be delayed" setting in MS Exchange

We are running Exchange 2000 and want to turn off (temporarily) the setting that controls when a user gets a message to tell them the email they are sending will be delayed.

The message is:
Subject: Delivery Status Notification - Delay
Message: Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed

How do you do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi purplesoup,

You can temporarily disable the postmaster account of your domain. The NDR's are generally sent using the postmaster account of your domain. Just a thought though ;-)

On the Global Settings in ESM go to Internet Message formats and Edit the properties. There are
tickboxes there to prevent NDR's being sent.

sorry I must have posted the acceptance at the same time as you posted this comment!
but what you could do, and would be appropriate is to have have the question reopened... just post a 0 point question in the support area, title it "Please reopen question to split points"

In the body... insert

and that's all you have to do.

It would be much appreciated!!  Thanks in advance.
As f_umar and I posted different answers, you should review both answers to determine which answer is right for you.  Points should only be awarded for the correct answer, not just any answer.  Sometimes, splitting points for a somewhat valid answer but not the solution to the question causes other people to misinterpret the answer when searching through the solutions database.

If f_umar's answer solved your problem, then award him the points; if my answer solved your problem, then award me the points.  I just want to avoid confusion for future reviewers of this solution.   :-)
