MS Exchange and Blackholes

If you're using Cpanel, you can configure your default email address as :blackhole: which means that any email sent to an undefined address will not be bounced back. If you try sending email to a non-existing address, you'll usually get a "Recipient Not Recognized" error. But if email black holes are in effect, you won't get an error message. But how can we do this using MS Exchange?

Everytime there's an email sent to a non-existent address, MS Exchange will have to reply to the sender about the error. This can drain the resources of the email server.

Black Holes - not just a space thing! (MS Exchange Blog)

Time to see if this works! :-)
