How do I stop a user from getting mail via Exchange 2003 without locking them completely out of the user account.  Also the mailbox might need to reactivated later.

Thanks

Hi,
In ADUC goto properties and specify whom the  user can receive from. Just put your email address, so that no one else can send
Thanks

You could go into their account properties on the Exchange Advanced tab, click Mailbox Rights, find their name (or add it) and set all rights to Deny.

That would allow mail to be received but the user shouldn't be able to access it any more. If you want them to access their mail but not receive any more from the outside, you could go to the account properties and clear everything on the Email Addresses tab.

Just remove the SMTP address's from the Email address tab of the required user and that's it :)
