i have this error in event viewer

A non-delivery report with a status code of 5.0.0 was generated for recipient rfc822;user@company.com (Message-ID <serveroDhyJ5lb00006ec7@server.company.location.com>).  
Cause:  This indicates a permanent failure. Possible causes :  1)No route is defined for a given address space. For example, an SMTP connector is configured, but this recipient address does not match the address spaces for which it routes mail.  2)Domain Name Server (DNS) returned an authoritative host not found for the domain.  3)The routing group does not have a connector defined û mail from one server in the routing group has no way to get to another routing group.    
Solution: Verify that this error is not caused by a DNS lookup problem, and then check the address spaces configured on your STMP connectors. If you are delivering Internet mail through an SMTP connector,  consider adding an address space of type SMTP with value ô*ö (an asterisk) to one of the SMTP connectors to make routing possible. Verify all routing groups are connected to each other through a routing group connector or another connector.

Are you sure that you removed the e-mail address with the correct domain? If mails are stuck in the directory lookup queue they have been received successfully by the exchange server but exchange cannot find the appropriate recipient e-mail addresses in active directory. Obviously the e-mail addresses the mails should be sent to are non existent.

Have a look in the recipient policy in Exchange System Manager and look for the domain name printed in bold. That is the primary domain that is used by exchange when sending e-mail and if this has been used in the past then mail addresses with this domain name have been propagated to the outside. So if an outside user clicks on reply for example he will send the mail to this domain.

Obviously if e-mail addresses for this domain no longer exist, mails will be stuck in the queue.
