Exchange Postmaster Recipients

Hey Peeps,

So, I'm getting pretty frustrated with what should be an easy issue. I've taken over the IT position for a company that previously outsourced their support.

Every week or so, the old outsource IT person will send me an email forward of a Delivery Status Notification (failure) message from the Postmaster account.

How do I change the recipient list for the postmaster account, or for the DSN messages?

    You should set mailbox for copy of NDR messages:;en-us;294757

    What is the Exchange server version and is the NDR settings done to some specific account ?
    Is any NDR sent to the user account ? Does he still has a Working account\mailbox ? Is there any forwarder to it ?

    Hey Guys, it's on server2k3.

    Answered my own question eventually again.

    NDR messages are sent from (in my case) the postmaster account, and then forwarded to the administrator account (this is normal).

    The old admin had his personal email forwarded on the administrator account.

    Figured the issue out on my own, the question was just to simple / silly.
