How to refuse mail if there's no mailbox

By Joshua1 ·
Can I tell Exchange that if there's no mailbox, don't accept the e-mail? For example, if mail is sent to mailbox1@domain.com, and there is no mailbox1, I don't want it floating around for 2 more days. I see junk mail in the Q from people who's accounts were deleted over a year ago.

Thanks.
I'm running EX2k SP1 - single server Ex Organization.

Leave the mailbox with the addresses on it and impose mailbox limits of 1KB

It also keeps trying to find a mailbox for mis-spelled mailboxes, like: mailbbbox1@domain.com. I've got a bunch of those, too.
