Can you expand on that a bit? The question and question title don't really explain enough about what you want to do.

A particular email address in our organisation is receiving email with the subject "Independent Investigation demanded by women in" with an attached PDF file.  I want to block the email coming in.

Does the email come in from the same address each time?
Is this to stop an email loop, a spam message, something else?
The blocking options in Exchange are very limited, you usually have to use a third party tool, such as antivirus or antispam software to block messages.

Same domain name, 2 different email addresses.  Don't know whether it is spam or not as he is the only user gettting them.

Maybe I should say, I know I can block at Outlook leve on his account, but I would like to block at Server level.

You can block senders in Exchange. However that will block all email from that sender.
ESM, Global Settings, Message Delivery, Sender Filtering. You then need to enable it on the SMTP virtual server. ESM, Servers, <your server> Protocol, SMTP. Right click on the default SMTP VS and choose Properties. Click on Advanced and then Edit. Enable Sender Filtering. Apply/OK out and restart the SMTP Server service.
