I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well there is no Account specifically that does that. However you can create a transport rule which can drop all of the messages that are sent to this mailbox. You will need to create two rules for this. One for inside the organization and one for Outside the organization.

- Create a new transport rule
- Conditions should be From Users that are Outside the Organization
- Actiion should be Delete the message without notifying anyone

Repeat the steps creating another transport rule for "From Users that are Inside the Organization".

Assuming that the user is using outlook

Email address - Use whatever you want the replies to go to.
Account name -  (If using  and outside isp mail server - just create the

Under Server Tab - use the  usercode and PW

If the outgoing mailbox does get emails, just create the rule in Outlook that deletes the emails

Test to make sure that the mail sent from that machine has the correct reply etc
