I wonder if someone can help me remove the catch all from my server, we use an external spam filter and it is reporting that the server has catch all enabled.

Is it a simple operation to disable on several mail domains?

Regards,

Exchange 2007 has no catch-all functionality enabled by default, you even require a dedicated edge-transport server and explicit configuration for this to work... (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/exchangesvrgeneral/thread/c8fba4d7-4ddb-40ec-b77e-d198da86173f/)
I'm not sure what your antispam service is based on to report this, but unless you enabled it explicitly, you will not have a catch-all setup on Exhcange.

from exchange shell
run

get-transportagent | fl

See if there is a catchall agent

then you can run

disable-transportagent "CatchAll Agent"

you need to restart hub transport for this to work.

Blangers,
Thank you for your comments, everything I knew about Exchange 2007 was similar.  Thank you for the confirmation.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Sunnyc7,
I did run the scripts, just to confirm that I hadn't any agents installed.
