Dear All,
We are moving our exchange 2010 to a new server, and we would not to recreate all user for all employers that don't work anymore for our company.

Because these employers put on internet many advertise to our company, is possible someone try to send them mails, so we would to forward it to someone inside the company that have an account.

Is it possible ?

Hi Uniprof

Can you describe your query more. With an example if possible. I assume you want to accept email for non existing user in Exchange. Is it from specific domain or you want to accept from all domains. Accepting from all domains can lead to spam issues.

I can help you, if you can tell what exactly you want.

You can add a single domain as accepted domain in Exchange 2010 and that should be the solution. Below is the MS KB how to do it


Hope this helps
