How to disable send mail in Exchange 5.5

There are a couple of things you might try depending on what problem you're trying to solve.

You could set a mailbox size limit that is lower than the current size of the mailbox - this will prohibit sends and/or receives while still permitting access to the contents. This one is easily reversible by just changing the limit back.

A second option might be to export the contents of the mailbox to a personal folder and then disable the mailbox. This would be more appropriate for a non-reversible event.

There are a couple of ways this might be done. First, if the user doesn't need to receive mail (your question sort implies they do want to continue to receive, but I'm not sure), you could just create .pst file and let them open that after deleting the mailbox.

If all you want to do is prohibt sends but not receives, you could open the mailbox properties, click on the Limits tab and purposely set the Prohibit Send limit to 0k. The user will receive mail but can not send.

Also, set the Maximum Outgoing size limit to 0k as well.
