I have a client that has a good valid reason to block ANYONE on their local Exchange 2003 server from sending an email to 1 specific recipient.

I know I can do this on my firewall but that is not the answer I am looking for.

I am looking for a solution that will allow me to block sending to this email recipient in Exchange 2003.

The local would be mydomain.com (A/D and Exchange)
recipient would be salesperson@someotherdomain.com

Easily done using a mail enabled contact.

1. Create an email enabled contact for the email address that you want to block, using Active Directory Users and Computers on the Exchange server.
2. After creating the contact, click on the tab "Exchange Advanced" and enable the option to hide the user from the Address Lists.
3. Click on the tab "Exchange General" and adjust the Message Restrictions. Change to "From Everyone Except" and set to your equivalent of your "All Staff" list.
