Need user mailbox disable or disconnected, but never deleted

All,

This is a basic question, but we had a user leave our company.  We want to leave his mailbox on the server for a few months so management can go through it, but we no longer want him to receive emails, but bounce back instead.  Is there a simple way to do this via the EMC.

Thanks!

Yes you can put restriction on the mailbox to not receive emails from anyone but active with AD Account disabled as well.

Something like
This is found in the Properties of the distribution group in the Mail Flow Settings tab under Message Delivery Restrictions configure Accept Messages From and put the same account there.

You can do this in the same way that external users need permission to send to a distribution list (the out of the box setting in Exchange 2K7)

Go to Recipient Properties > Mail Flow Settings Tab > Message Delivery Restrictions and ensure that "Require that all senders are authenticated" is selected.

Changing the password is going to have absolutely no effect on whether or not the account will receive emails.
