Is there a way to create a "blind email account" in Microsoft Exchange Server?
If I understand the question correctly, you can create a mailbox in Active Directory Users and Computers and then choose to hide the mailbox from the Global Address List (GAL). You do this by viewing the properties of the mailbox in Active Directory Users and Computers, switching to the Exchange Advanced tab (you may need to click View | Advanced in Active Directory Users and Computers in order to display this tab) and checking the "Hide from Exchange address lists" checkbox.

Hope that's what you were asking, and hope that helps!
