Exchange 2007 block all incoming email to a specific user

I need to set up an email account to be used for a mailing list.  So it needs to be able to send email but they don't want anyone to be able to reply or send to it directly. I was doing some checking and it seems like I could use a Transport Rule for this but I've never done one of those and if I'm not careful I might wind up blocking everyone’s incoming email.  While poking around EMC, I also saw an option under Mail Flow Settings for Message Delivery Restrictions.   Perhaps that would be easier?  I could change the accept messages from all senders to either an internal group or even just the administrator.  What would be my best option for accomplishing this?

Hub Transport rules are not that scary.  They use a wizard much like Outlook rules.  It would be hard to get it wrong.  It wont commit until the end anyway.

A transport rule is exactly what you need to facilitate this. Go through the wizard to see the options, you don't have to click finish if your not confident.

Okay, if I do the hub transport rule.  I select “sent to people” and specify the user “newsletter” and then for the action select “silently drop the message” so nothing goes into the mailbox?  That sound right to you?

Yes that should work. Any mail sent to newsletter will be dropped without a ndr.
