Recently we installed an exchange server and were having no problems. now one of the users who is broadcasting large amounts of emails is getting "unknown recipient errors". about half of her emails don't send. the error message that we get is.


 A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to bounce between two servers or to be forwarded between two recipients

First of all how much Exchange servers do you have?
Try taking one of the "unknown recepients" addresses and check where the e-mail points.
What was the latest change??

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I'd start by sending a couple test messages to the rejected e-mail addresses to see if the problem is on your end or theirs?  Us an AOL account, or a yahoo account and send a copy to yourself.
