Hi,  I am using SBS 2003 with Exchange Server.  As the administrator I have all undeliverable emails be delivered to my local address.  All of these emails are to personell who no longer are with the company.  Is there a way in Exchange to only allow mailed to be delivered to actual employees and not someone who use to work here?  Please advise.

Thanks!

If I followed your question right, that is exactly what exchange is doing.  I'm guessing that what you are getting in your inbox is a copy of the undeliverable message (or bounce) that is sent back to the original sender to inform them they exchange cannot deliver to that account.

I believe you are correct.  How can I turn that off?

I would suggest you create a separate account to hold these emails.  An account that you just check once a day or weekly.

Create a new account & mailbox (in this example I'll use Postmaster) in your domain.

In the Exchange shell type:
Get-TransportServer

You should see a field "ExternalPostmasterAddress" (This field may be empty)

Now type:
Set-TransportServer (servername) -ExternalPostmasterAddress postmaster@(yourdomian.com)

To verify it type the "Get-TransportServer" command again and you should now see your new account listed
