    1. On your Exchange server create a mail-enabled distribution group named BlackHole.
    2. Make sure that there are no members in this distribution group.
    3. Send as that group.

    Or you could create a user account (noreply or whatever) and set the Delivery Restrictions (in ADUC) to only accept messages from the people in the list...but don't put anyone in the list. This way when they reply they'll get an NDR. With the empty distribution list method it will look like the message went through even though nobody will ever look at it, this way they'll know nobody received the message.
