  • I do not believe that there is a way to block the message. I'd recommend NEVER setting the Do not allow receiving mail limit. Then the NDR won't get generated. Setting the receive limit impacts other users, use the limit sending abilities instead.

  • Why would you want to prevent a sender from knowing an email they sent was not delivered to the intended recipient?

    [string](0..33|%{[char][int](46+("686552495351636652556262185355647068516270555358646562655775 0645570").substring(($_*2),2))})-replace " "

  • What version of Exchange and Outlook are you using? All the "newer" versions wont even let you send an overszied message from the client.

  • The post says "oversized", but the wording implies an overquota recipient.

    Regardless. Whats the goal in not wanting to see it.

  • What is the goal you want to do that?

    I think ewoodrick is right, there isn't any way to block that message.

    Thanks,

    Sorry for posting in such an old thread, but I have a similar issue:
    We have a mailing list account that receives thousands of Undeliverable messages every day.
    Could I use ECS to tell Exchange to Reject Messages From "MicrosoftExchange[long string]@domain.com?
    What would happen to the Undeliverable messages? Are there any problems with this?

    Thank you!

    Edit: that solution did not block the DSNs.
    I also tried creating a transport rule to delete all e-mail going to that account, but that only worked for personal e-mails, not DSNs.
    One solution I was able to come up with was to set a mail rule that sends everything to a subfolder. This will prevent the mailbox from hitting the "100,000 items in critical path folders" best practice.
    The second solution I am testing is to create a Mailbox Retention Policy to permanently delete all items older than 7 days.
