  • Can mailflow be stopped without deleting mailbox?

    Hi,

    I searched around for a simple answer but couldn't find something specific.

    I have a mailbox for an x-user. I'm not ready to delete the mailbox yet, however, can I stop mail delivery to this mailbox?

    (the user is disabled in AD)

    Thanks in advance,

    Y.A

    Various options.
    The most common is to remove the SMTP address, which will stop external email, then hide the user from the GAL.
    You could also change the delivery restrictions on the user to reject email from everyone.

    Depends whether you want a "user unknown" NDR or " message rejected" NDR.

    Simon.
