How can I restricted inbound email

I have a situation that I'm trying to restrict all inbound emails for a particular address. I would like have the email account send out emails and also have it deny any inbound and send out a message stating that emails sent the this address is prohibited. If this is a easy process I apologize I'm totally new to Exchange.

    What version of Exchange?

    Not having it directly in front of me, you would go to the properties of the user in ADUC (on a server that has the Exchange Tools installed) and under Exchange General tab go to Delivery Restrcitions. Select "Accept Messages only from:" and put an administrator's name or some other user in there. This will effectively block people from sending to that mailbox.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    Thanks, all email thats over 1 KB was restricted. I was going to make myself as the only user able to send this address emails but the head IT man thought it was better resticting by size.

    just a thought... but you could have their emails redirected to another users mailbox (under the exchange general tab) in the user AD account. then setup a rule within outlook that sends the original recipent an 'automated prohibited' reply.
    next up SharePoint... what's that all about!
