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?

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

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.

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