Exchange 2003 - receiving bouceback messages - how do I block? (kinda urgent)

Running Exchange 2003 standard service pack 2 fully patched.  One user sent a whole bunch of emails and now receives the following message (see below) about once every 5 minutes.  I had the user exit Outlook completely and use Outlook Web access.   The message below keeps arriving so I think I can confidently say it's a problem with Exchange and not Outlook.

I have run a spyware checker on the user's pc - no spyware.

What procedure do I use in Exchange to block messages like this ?  Please provide details as I am not an Exchange expert.

I am providing 500 points because this is an urgent issue.

You can't block those messages. Your server has to accept NDRs that are destined for your server. If you attempt to block the messages you will get your server blacklisted.
The remote server has an error and they need to fix the messages.
Have you contacted the remote site to inform them of the problem?

Sembee:  yes I have, no response.  Suggestions?  What do you do in cases like this?

Did you call them, or just email?
You don't really have many options, but to sweat it out. The message should time out after 48 hours.

I disabled the offending email address and created another.  This stopped the offending email.
