I have a user who receives mail on a distribution group that she does not belong to.

She is using outlook 2003.  The backend is exchange server 2003 and 2000 Active Directrory.  In AD I see that she is not a member.  I tried adding her and removing her from the group but that has not worked.

Probably a delegate of a group member.

She does do admin work and is delagate for a few users, but this distribution group is for another office that she does not work with.

Is she receiving it every time someone sends something to the dist. group or only from one person that sends mail to the dist. group?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

There will be a link somewhere. Exchange doesn't send email to users who aren't a member of the group.
The only other thing I can think of is that the group has got corrupted. Recreate the group. If the problem follows then it has to be one of the recipients.

I had a problem very similar to this. A group was corrupted and recreated. Instead of deleting the corrupted group, it was renamed, moved, and hidden from the GAL. The new group worked fine but the bad one was not deleted. I kept receiving emails from one person going to a particular dist. group and couldn't figure out why. The problem seemed to be that the display name. It was eventually changed to the same thing as the bad group. The sender was using autofill and still had the bad group cached with the new groups display name.

A temp user seems to have been corupted and been the cause.  When that user was deleted it solved the problem.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.
