How to disable Undeliverable Messages

deroyer asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-30
I am wondering if anyone knows how to disable "Mail Delivery Failure" notifications on Exchange 2003.  
I have recently taken over a new network environment and have a unique scenerio that I am hoping someone else can identify with.
We have a subscription reminder service that we offer to customers who opt in to the particular program.  Because of the mass emails we are often blacklisted as "Spam/Bulkmailer".  I am constantly monitoring these lists to remove us as we pop up.  I am looking into correct ways to fix DNS/SPF records, but that is for another discussion.

What I am hoping to do is when users on my network send a message that is undeliverable.  I don't want them to receive the undeliverable message at all.  I would rather the user just assume that it got through and have the undeliverable message go to a central administration mailbox where I can teach one of my admins to troubleshoot  on the users behalf.
As I understand The Default SMTP server option is just to deliver a copy to a central mailbox, but it doesn't keep it from coming to the sender.
