  • Create a receive-only email account

    Hello, I want to ask if it is possible to create an email account that can only receive but cannot send out email.

    I tried using Mailbox Quota, Prohibit Send At: 0KB, but it never worked. I also tried using transport rules but nothing worked.

    Is there a way to go about this?..
    Thank you.

    Transport rules is what you need. They are designed for this.
    You would have to setup the rule for both internal and external recipients to capture everything.

    Another option would be a public folder, and is what I have used in the past.

      Thanks for your quick reply. It was really helpful.
      All I did was to review the transport rules again.

      1. I added the recipient's name to condition: from people
      2. I then chose the Silently drop the message Action.

      Now the recipient's sent mails weren't getting delivered.

      Thanks a lot Sir.
