    At one site, a user's default e-mail address is being used as a target for
    lots of spam. In spite of up to date AntiSpam software, still quite a number
    get through. Therefore the decision was to change that user's e-mail address.

    The default address that SBS / Exchange creates is . They
    want to change it only for this user to and permanently
    prevent the server from regenerating for this user only.

    It's easy enough to add to that user's profile but how do
    you permanently prevent the server from regenerating the
    address from the default receipient policy but only for this user and not
    other users on the server ?

    In Active directory users & computers, properties of the user, email
    addresses tab - uncheck the box at the bottom "automatically generate email
    addresses based on recipient template".
