    Customize NDR

    When you change a phone number, the phone company has a forward for several months of the new number. I have a user that has moved on, and would like to have the NDR say Joe's new email is: xxx@yyy.com. From looking at HELP, it would be in ALL NDRs not just Joe's. Or is the solution to lock his account but activate a Rule Forward to all mail coming in. He needs to be locked out, but I would like to reject his mail with a friendlier "He isn't here" message.

    It would depend on the mail server software you are using. But it is unlikely you can customize per user. You may be able to find a third party addon that would let you do this.

    Can you use the Out-of-office assistant and use a rule to delete the messages, or do you really need to reject them?

    Re: Customize NDR

    The software is SBS2000 (Exchange 2000) and I want to send a message to everyone (every time) for about a month, saying Joe's new email address is: xxx@yyy.com. At the same time, Joe needs to be prevented from using his account. (Disable account will generate NDR - user not found, right?) so I'm leaning to change pwd and put wizard in to auto-reply to all email. Out-of-office just sends a reply on the first email (which probably would be okay). I was just wanting to see how real admins would handle this.

    As you surmised, I am not a real admin. In your scenario, I'd probably just change his password to block his access. I'm practical that way. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Personally, I leave the NDRs as they are, disable the users account and give ownership of the mailbox to a manager for a few days. Then, I turn off the mailbox and let the NDRs bounce back for a few mroe days. Then I remove the mailbox and add the user's STMP mail address to a public folder with a very short lifetime, so spam and newsletters just get "swallowed" (but are there for a bit of time)
