"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

You would need some sort of workaround as that really isn't possible. So just an idea: You could set up a rule that sends their incoming mail directly to delete.

Potential problem is if they don't get incoming email, delivery errors could also get lost. So nobody would ever know if something sent from this particular user wasn't received.

You can configure the message delivery settings for the users in question as detailed here:

You can also configure a Transport rule to reject any messages sent to said users.

Vasil, thank you. Think of this has a computer specific requirement. The user can get mail just not on this pc. They just need to be able to send mail from the pc. The solutions provided look like they would affect the flow of mail to that user which I can't do

There's no way to restrict sending from specific computers only. You can impose restrictions that prevent accessing the mailbox from specific IPs, but there's no functionality that can just restrict sending.

don't use a mail client use a script or a bespoke application that will send the mail

I ended up using outlook imap to office 365 and then going into groups and unchecking the receive. This will have to do for now.
