The email I copied below, has been sent to me every day or so for a couple of weeks.  It is being sent to (actually, I guess from) an email address that we have published, so the public does see it.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Looks like a standard spoofed email message.
The spammer has put your email address in the From line, with the targets in the BCC line.

Should I block anything at the Exchange server since it keeps getting sent over and over?

As the messages are originating outside of your server, there is very little you can do.
It is an NDR, which technically you have to accept.
