I was listening to a very riveting Exchange server podcast recently and heard the guy say :

"In today's hostile e-mail environment its recommended that messages are not rejected with bounces where possible but with SMTP rejections. That way the reject error goes to the computer which started the SMTP session, not the spoofed sender."

Can someone explain to me how to set this up ?

Thank you

Hi pbgormley,
