That is all that you are supposed to do.
You will have at least two email addresses listed: jlani@domain.com and jadams@domain.com
One of those will be default.

What happens when another user tries to send to the new email address?

Time for message tracking then.

ESM, Admin Groups, <your admin group>, Servers. Right click on your server and choose Properties. Enable message tracking on the first tab.

I only configure it to keep message tracking data for 10 days.
Once enabled, send a message in then use the Tracking Center in Tools to see where it went and what Exchange did with it.

If it is still generating the NDR - what does Message tracking tell you? That wasn't a fix BTW, it is a diagnostic tool - it shows whether the message came in or not.

Otherwise, try removing the alias from the account. Wait 30 minutes for Windows to update itself. Then put it back in. Leave the existing email address in place.
