I can't seem to send a message to a particular address at kim_tangler@nrel.gov, and I know the address is valid.  Normally I would think this was something on their end, but  it was also brought to my attention that another individual at NREL tried to send me a couple of messages yesterday, and they bounced back to him.  Any idea what is going on? Here are error messages:

this means that it cannot send mail to this user.  sometimes the user is either disabled or no longer on this server.

Is that a valid mail server for them.

here is what the 5.1.1 error code means -
recepitent could nto be resolved. check the destination address and try resending the message.

Have you tried sending via a manual telnet session to the destination host from your server?  A "user unknown" error would accompany an NDR for an unresolved mailbox.

I can show you how to telnet if you need it.

Thanks for your help. I found the reason. That company has two Exchange servers. The first one is active and the one I told you. It is no problem to ping or telnet it. But the email account were moved from the first one to the second one. Now the second one was down. That is the whole store. The problem is on the other end.
