Right click on the group in the NAB, Find document properties, click on
the access tab (the key) Modify who can access (read) the group document
limiting it to authorized users.
This works quite well. Any one sending to the group geta a you are not
authorized to read -error

Do Not Reply account

We've secured the "All Users" group in Notes so that people stop sending
email to all users. Other than LocalDomainAdmins and LocalDomainServers
there are 1 or 2 secretaries that can access that account. The problem
is, despite admonitions to NOT reply to that email people continue to do
so. Here's a scenario:
CEO wants to send a message out to All Users. Has secretary sends out the

email (because even he has no authority to that group). Part of the email

says "if you have any questions contact ...". StupidUser replies back to
the secretary.

Can I register a user that can send out email but not receive? Or uses an

invalid address? Like, if you send an email to dinglefritzATdekkoDotCom
you would get a reply back that there was no such user. Can I do
something like that internally in Notes?

I tried setting up a special user. Secretary will have to "switch id" to
this user. Default signature says something like:
"Do not reply to this message. The original message should have a contact

person if you have any questions. Replies to this email account will be
analyzed to see if the sender needs to attend remedial reading classes."

If you think that's harsh - you ought to see the out of office message.

I'm hoping that this doesn't result in one of those late Friday afternoon
meetings with my boss.
