I have several users who get the below message from the Syatem Administrator when forwarding to someone within the corporation.
The people do have mailboxes on my Exchange 2000 server and all clients run Outlook 2003.

What gives?

Check the spelling. make sure that they are spelling the receiants e-mail address correctly.

Also go to Microsoft Exchange System Manager.

Use the Message tracking tool to see what's happening to the e-mails.

Message tracking tools will help you trouble shoot this problem.

Make sure you have message tracking logging turned on. Otherwise, message tracking tools won't help.

Go into ESM. Right Click on the Server. And choose Properties. In the General Tab.

You could do either of the following.

1. uncheck the "Enable Message Tracking" or
2. Check "Remove log files". Enter a number next to "Remove files older than (days)"

I would keep this message tracking logs and choose option 2 and keep logs file for 7 days.
Exchange's Message Tracking tool is very valablue tool for troubleshooting and resolving NDRs
