Does an Exch 07 Edge Server store messages that cannot be delivered?

If an Exch 07 Hub Transport server is down, will the associated Edge server store incoming messages or bounce them back ?

Yes, an EDGE can queue if a HT is unavailable.

In the event that a Hub Transport server is unresponsive, the Edge Transport server will attempt delivery to another Hub Transport server within that AD Site. If all Hub Transport servers are unresponsive, then the message will queue on the Edge Transport server.

Is there a way to configure the Edge server so that it does not store but bounces back?  I know this does not seem advisable... just looking for options at the moment.

^^ yes you can. This would be done via a transport rule on the Edge itself.
