Email block

Hi Experts,

we use a SBS2011 server which hosts our email exchange.

I want to be able to prevent a user from emailing 1 specific email address. is this possible?

both the user and the address are managed via the server. both internal addresses.

best regards,
LVL 2

A hub transport rule can be used to perform this, as all emails internal and external are processed by the hub role

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124737(v=exchg.141).aspx - explains how to create this rule, it can also be performed via powershell but if you not familiar with the process the GUI would be your best bet. The wizard is quite intuitive and the rules are based on condition, exception and action so should be easy to figure out what fits your circumstances

Let me know if you get stuck

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

you can do it from the mailbox properties -> mail flow settings . there is one setting to restrict the email from the specific user.

Hi Stuart,

I done it using the wizard and it was easy enough but I am stuck at one stage.

when I select the action to reject the message it says 'with enhanced status code'. it then says 'enhanced status code (valid values are 5.7.1, and any value between 5.7.10 and 5.7.999):'

what is an enhanced code?

it doesn't let me proceed without it

this was very helpful Stuart but for some reason when I put in 5.7.3 for example, it says 'some controls aren't valid. - "5.7.3" is not a valid value for "RejectEnhancedStatus".

I have tried all the other codes and it says exactly the same.!
