  • How do i Block E-Mail from a relay server.

    Lately we get Warnings mail from a server (that is in a relay with OUR server and keeps our mail before we pull it to our server ) about a virus that was blocked before it get to our server.
    any way i want to block any mail that my server gets from a certain recipient address, so that way this anoying mail will not get to the clients mail. they dont want to see any warnings at the inbox.

    i created rulez in the outlook2003, to delete this mail but its not working good, mail arrives and the rule must be applied each time manualy.

    is there a way to block mail from my exchange server???

    Create a connection filter to block email from the IP of the email server in question.

    Read this KB article for instructions.

      thnx for the url and for ur help;

      any way 1 of my biggest problems is exchange
      im very new to exchange. for example when they say in the help page
      to "Start Exchange System Manager" i dont even know how to do it.
      in my server there is no short cuts to this. there is an active directory connected to the exchange not more. also a second problem is that i realy dont want to block the mail from the relay server IP i want to block mail with certain messages in it not more.

      so I have 2 problems:
      1> how i Start Exchange System Manager;
      2> how i block only certain mail from a sender in my server level and
      not client level. without knowing its ip.

        1. It is likely that this is not the Exchange server then, either install the Exchange System Managment Tools to connect to it this way or run it directly from the start menu on the actual server.
        (Start->Programs->Microsoft Exchange->System Manager)

        2. Create a sender filter if you want to block only one sender address.
