Can you block e-mails in Exchange?

By bridog ·
I have a user who's brother sends him unwanted e-mail. He has requested numerous times that he stop sending the mail, but he does not stop. Is there a way I can block the e-mail coming in from this "bad brother" with Excange 5.0?

Bridog,
Under your exchange administrator, Open the Internet Mail Service Properties (which is under configuration/connections), click on the delivery restrictions tab, and under the reject messages from box add the bad brothers e-mail address. Exchange will then block the messages. If you have any questions e-mail me bwatson@kafoury.com

The other way to do this, one which requires the user to do the work instead of you, is to use the Rules Wizard (OL9 or Inbox Assistant (OL97).

It's under the Tools menu, and the user can set up to delete any unwanted mail that comes in.

Keep in mind, if the bad brother's email account is not a member of your Exchange organization you'll need to create a custom recipient using his external address. Once this is done you can select the custom recipient as the account that you want torestrict within the Internet Mail Conn. properties. As mentioned in a previous response.
