In the exchange properties for that user you can configure delivery to not allow any delivery...and then make sure you hide his account from the GAL.

Can you be more specific on where to find the option to not allow delivery.  I've looked and can't find it.

Using Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) from the Exchange server (or another computer with Exchange Tools installed) right-click the account, choose properties then go to Exchange General then enter the appropriate message restrictions

so..."only from" is checked and no one put in the box and that does not work?  That would seem to accomplish what i need but it doesn't.  there is no explicit "do not deliver" option???

There is no explicit do not deliver option.  I typically create a mail contact for a dummy addres (like nomail@nowhere.local), hide it from the GAL, then use it for any accounts I need to block mail delivery to.  For a quick how to on creating a mail enabled contact and hiding it in the GAL see http://www.amset.info/exchange/contacts.asp
