Exchange 2003 sending NDR 5.1.1 Internally after server rebuild, External mail coming through fine
Posted on 2005-05-08
I have recently replaced a failed exchange server with a new install of Windows 2003 and E2k3 standard . The mailboxes were pulled from the failed drive ( ontrack power controls) to the new install. Their are 2 domains that we receive mail for . One domain works fine while the other domain will accept all mail from external sources, but when you send to SOME of the email addresses on the domain come back with an NDR 5.1.1 - recipient not known.
I send to email@example.com from yahoo -- Delivers fine
I send to firstname.lastname@example.org from within the orginization, fails with NDR 5.1.1
I have traced this with message tracking and it shows me SMTP: Non Delivered Report Generated as the last thing..
Heres the weird thing, when I look at the to: field in the message history window, in message tracking , it shows me
/O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=Kristi
This person has never been known as kristi that I am aware of.
ANOTHER EXAMPLE : User is William Rally , same as above, but to: field shows the following:
/O=FIRST ORGANIZATION/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=Brally
If I create a new user, It works fine. most of the other users are fine. I have tried rebuilding the OAB, new exchange profile didnt help.
Is there somewhere I can view the CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=Brally information? I have done an ADSIEdit and have not found anything referring to Brally in active directory.
