Hello,

I am having a problem with delay/NDR messages being delivered in regards to an "imaginary user" existing on our system (who I'll call imaginaryuser@domain.net). By imaginary I mean that the user was deleted from Active Directory a month ago.

Here is what happening:

When person A creates a Meeting Appointment in Outlook 2003, using distro@domain.net for the scheduled contact, an NDR gets sent back to User A saying the imaginaryuser@domain.net didn't receive the appointment. I should say that first User A gets a "delay" message for imaginaryuser@domain.net. imaginaryuser@domain.net does not exist in this distro (never did).

Distro@domain.net is just an ordinary distribution list (global) of users.

Here's the kicker though:

When User A sends a regular e-mail message to distro@domain.net, there are no delayed repsonses or NDRs returned for imaginaryuser@domain.net. Why is it that only when User A creates a Meeting appointment that he/she recieves a "delay" or NDR?

The topic should be "NDR for users who don't exist anymore," not "exit."

I found the solution to this.

There was a client who had a server-side rule to forward all meeting appointments to this user. It was a tedious task of sending to every individual on the distrubution list. When I discovered who it was, I went to the offending user and ran "outlook /cleanrules" at the run prompt. It worked.
