Setup secondary dead-end SMTP on Exchange 2007

We are using Exchange 2007 to route SMTP traffic.  Occasionally we need to point a system to a dead-end SMTP server.  In other words, I need to setup another SMTP server that accepts mail but never actually sends it anywhere (or simply deletes it).  Does anyone know of a way to do this with Exchange 2007?

Aah....use Transport Rules else, pretty straight forward. Refer: http://www.nitingupta.in/articles/exchange2007/Exchange2007_Transport_Rule.asp
Let me know
Thanks

Hi,
Not sure of the exact reason still - Create another Send Connector and in Smart Host entry, point to a non-existent IP Address

Exchange will do this for you without an additional server.
Just put the email address on to a group with no members.

The Send Connector method above will not work, as the messages will simply queue and be dropped after the timeout. Not very efficient.
