How to remove a email domain from a user

I have a exchange with multiple domains on it, all of my users have email addresses on all the domains, well one of my user gets about 3000 junk mail messages a day. It comes from an email address on only one of the domains, this user doesn't use this address anymore but they do use their name on another domain. so I want to disable the incomming mail on only one domain for this use, I removed it from the list of smtp servers under their profile but mail is still coming in. Do I need to restart the exchange server before this takes effect? or is there something else I have to do?

What is SQL Server and how does it work?

The purpose of this paper is to provide you background on SQL Server. It’s your self-study guide for learning fundamentals. It includes both the history of SQL and its technical basics. Concepts and definitions will form the solid foundation of your future DBA expertise.

 
NJComputerNetworksCommented:
The Recipient Update Service (RUS) is responsible for updating existing e-mail addresses and for creating new e-mail addresses. You can specify the Server which is responsible for the RUS and the Update interval.


Figure 9: RUS – Recipient Update Service

The RUS creates a recipient policy for every Windows 2003 Domain which has Exchange 2003 installed. If you have three Domains in your Active Directory Forest, you will see three RUS Configurations.

There is only one RUS per Forest/Exchange Organization called “Enterprise configuration”.

The Enterprise Configuration is responsible for updateing e-mail addresses for components in the Configuration Naming Context in Active Directory which is forest-wide available.

The Domain Configuration updates e-mail addresses for objects in the Domain Partition in Active Directory.

You have two options for updates: “Update” and “Rebuild“. What is the difference between “Update” and “Rebuild”:

Update:
RUS generates proxy e-mail addresses for new Accounts. Address Book properties will be updated.

Rebuild:
RUS generates proxy e-mail addresses for new Accounts. Address Book properties will be updated and all Address Book properties will be verified. Note that this can be very time consuming in large and distributed Exchange Organizations.
