Not sure that Exchange supports this, but I guess this would fit better with isa. I've seen other products that will block an initial inbound smtp session forcing the sending smtp server to q and then retry later. This apparently helps prevent smtp spam bots as they tend to use a list of addresses the once without retrying.....

Hi ibanyard,

It sounds like you're talking about greylisting. A good anti-spam product can do it. My current favorite is Vamsoft's Open Relay Filter Enterprise Edition (ORFEE).
