A non-delivery report with a status code of 5.3.5 was generated for recipient rfc822;julieandrade@alltell.net (Message-ID <327FF2C7D6C6AC43B51A4435DAD955580A0232@ltw0.leadingtheway.org>).
Causes: A looping condition was detected. (The server is configured to route mail back to itself). If you have multiple SMTP Virtual Servers configured on your Exchange server, make sure they are defined by a unique incoming port and that the outgoing SMTP port configuration is valid to avoid looping between local virtual servers.
Solution: Check the configuration of the virtual serverÆs connectors for loops and ensure each virtual server is defined by a unique incoming port.

Sounds like it could possibly be that one of your users has configured a rule to forward email to their home account.
And also on their home account they have configured to forward emails to their corporate account.

Try to resolve from here:


Check the configuration of the SMTP Virtual Server;
 
- Using Exchange System Manager navigate to the following location;
- Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties
- Delivery Tab - Advanced
- Advanced Delivery - Configure
- Make sure you do not have any Internal and External DNS configured. This may cause a loop-back situation.

Note: External DNS IP's should be configured only on Front End SMTP Virtual Server.
Check the configuration of the Exchange SMTP Connector;
 
- Using Exchange System Manager navigate to the following location;
- Administrative Group - Servers
- Connectors
- SMTP Internet Connector - Properties
- Address space - Make sure the SMTP Address space is Asterisk, "*"
 
Since, SMTP Connector is used to send emails to any domain on Internet, it should always be "*"
