OUTLOOK meeting request to USERA generates NDR from USERZ, a deleted account.

The meeting request is not sent to a distribution group but to USERA only.  USERA receives the request as expected, but the sender also gets an NDR from System Administrator saying that the message did not reach all intended recipients and that USERZ does not exist.

USERZ is an account that was deleted long ago and mail from USERZ used to be automatically forwarded to USERA.  Not sure if delegation or any other link between the two accounts ever existed.

How can I get rid of the ghost of USERZ?

This is usually caused by a delegate.
Look in Outlook first, to see if the delegate is in there. If you cannot find it in there you may have to go sniffing around adsiedit.msc to see if it hasn't been removed correctly.

Since USERZ no longer exists, I have no way of knowing if he had any delegates.  And, I can't find him in AdsiEdit.  Where should I be looking?

MAke sure you check the delegates settings for USERA as Sembee points out its normally the check box in their that says something about send meeting requests I recieve to my delegate.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

It isn't UserZ that had the delegate. Someone made UserZ a delegate on their account.

USERA does not have any delegates and this NDR only happens when a meeting request is sent to USERA.

There is some link between the two - Exchange doesn't forward messages on its own.

One trick that can clear the problem is to add a delegate to the account, which forces the domain to update, then remove that delegate - a temporary delegate.
