Mail system Exchange 5.5.
Want to collect all wrong addressed mail to one mailbox where it gets deleted or analyzed if it is spam or not.

I don't have a 5.5 server any more, but I seem to remember that there was a setting for this in the property pages of the Internet Mail Connector.  Can you see something like 'Forward undeliverable mail to:' in there somewhere?  Unless I am imagining it?

Dear howart,
I belive that you are talking about NDR. You have postmaster account setup in exchange 5.5
Check the link below for the help on setting postmaster account (Check the answer for third question)

Hope this helps

Cheers!

inbarasan:  Answer is there, but it catches the copies of NDR's.
I need to deal with the problem that spam generates unnecessary mail.
What I like to do is send al that mail to a dustbin.

Already very helpfull, thx.
