/dev/null -- Want a "black hole" email addres... - 1.Feb.2006 4:22:10 PM

I've been in the Exchange world for about 2 years, coming from the Linux world.

In the past, when I would send out email blasts, I would have the bouncebacks go to pleasedonotreply@somewhere.com. In Linux, it's easy to alias an email address to /dev/null, which effectively makes any email to that address vanish.

Over and over, I run into situations where I need this kind of "black hole" email address.

Can anyone help me out?

Using Active Directory Users and Computers tool, create a mail enabled distribution group with no members and assign it pleasedonotreply@somewhere.com e-mail address
