I have distributive group on my Exchange server some. There are 15 members of that group. Now we need to include external member external.
I allowed mails to be sent to my group from outside organization and set transport rule to reject mail sent from outside organization except mail sent from external. It all works fine but I have some issues.
When mail is rejected because it is not permitted sender I get NDR with reason why email is rejected Sender is not permitted and below list of all emails members of that group to which email is not delivered.
I find that pretty much excessive as it reveals all members of my group. It is pretty messy to look at those messages and is also somewhat security issue since spammer can get confirmation of existence of each emails in that group which makes them easy targets for future spam. My question is if is there any way for these messages to be rejected silently without any NDR and undelivered report to each member of that group?

Monday, March 28, AM.

The custom NDR text replaces the default text for a given enhanced status code or quota event. You can create new NDRs for other enhanced status code values for example, 5.
You can use a range of custom enhanced status codes as part of an action for a mail flow rule also known as a transport rule. For more information, see Mail flow rule actions in Exchange Server. You can't use the Exchange admin center EAC for most of the procedures in this topic. You need to use the Exchange Management Shell. You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures.
To see what permissions you need, see the "DSNs" entry in the Mail flow permissions topic. For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard shortcuts in the Exchange admin center. Having problems? Ask for help in the Exchange forums. Note : You should output the list to a file, because the list is very long, and you'll receive errors if you don't have the required language packs installed.
For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Get-SystemMessage. This example returns detailed information for the custom NDR for the enhanced status code 5. If there's no custom NDR for this combination of language, audience, and enhanced status code, you'll receive an error. If there's no custom NDR for this combination of language and quota, you'll receive an error.
Internal : Controls whether the NDR is sent to internal or external senders. For example, in the custom text for internal senders, you can include help desk contact information that you wouldn't want to include in NDRs for external senders. Language : For the list of available languages, see the Supported languages for NDRs section in this topic.
DSNCode : The enhanced status code. Valid values are 4. This example creates a custom plain text NDR for the enhanced status code 5. For detailed syntax and parameter information, see New-SystemMessage. This example changes the text in the custom NDR for the enhanced status code 5. This example disables the specified custom NDR. Note : If there's no corresponding default NDR, you receive an error when you use the Original switch.
For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-SystemMessage. This example removes the custom NDR for the enhanced status code 5. For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Remove-SystemMessage.Whenever an e-mail is sent to these users, it gets forwarded automatically by the rule in place to that non-existing address which generates a Non-Delivery Receipt NDR.
When this NDR is received, it gets forwarded to the same address again, which generates another NDR, and so on, and so on, going into an infinite loop. This is known as an NDR Storm. Internally, Microsoft Exchange is able to detect this and automatically stops it. However, with e-mails coming from outside the organization, this is not the case due to multiple reasons….
An NDR is a message that a mail server sends to notify the sender when a problem occurs with the delivery of the e-mail. Depending on the reason for the NDR, this message looks similar to this:. From: mailer-daemon. Sent: Wednesday, August 3, PM. To: Nuno Mota. Subject: There was an error sending your mail …. Auto forwarded by a Rule. Full details follow:. It responded as follows: [ unknown user nuno msexchangeguru.
This works fine, except for the times this happens during the night. So, another approach is necessary. You can change the transport rule to simply drop the e-mails, but this is not the ideal solution….
What about a script to analyse the transport logs regularly looking for a NDR Storm? If detected, the script can create a Transport Rule?
The following script does just that. It analyses the transport logs every 20 minutes and if it finds a user that forwarded 25 or more NDRs, it creates a transport rule just for that user to block those e-mails from going out and redirects them to the Quarantine mailbox so that the Administrator is aware.Need support for your remote team?

Redirect NDR to other mailbox
IntelliComp Technologies is an IT service provider. This isn't simple, but certainly doable. You could setup a mailbox account to receive NDR's and create rules on the mailbox to forward select emails to a DL. We do currently have a mailbox set up to receive NDRs - will see if I can set up a rule on the mailbox itself.

DSNs and NDRs in Exchange Server
All Products. You set up a transport rule in Office to return a non-delivery report NDR that displays a custom message. This occurs in either of the following situations: The sender and recipient belong to different Office organizations.
The sender has an Office mailbox, and the recipient belongs to an external Exchange Server organization. This transport configuration setting must be changed at the organization that receives the NDR. However, any customized text or attachments that were associated with the original DSN are overwritten if the DSN is delivered from another Office organization or from an external organization. Instead, Exchange delivers the message as a standard message.
