Currently we have a public folder with an email address that external users are able to email, after which they receive an automated reply.  A user at example.com has sent through an email and the automated reply is bouncing from the postmaster@example.com
They are coming through at approx 1 every 15 seconds, the buildup at one point was close to 4000.

I have been told that after a few days this would resolve itself, but i would like to know if there is a better solution?

Hi,

Only thing I can think of is to set some kind of server side rule for trashing emails coming in i.e. maybe if 1 message arrives more than a certain amount of times set it to be deleted.

Info I found not sure if this will be helpful to your situation though.

As for the mail bouncing back, on your server there should be a retry setting that you could edit, where to edit this would depend on you version of exchange.

using exchange 2003, i was trying to avoid setting up a rule on the public folder itself as I would like the original to be kept only the large amount of duplicates deleted.
