Hello,

Any ideas about what this error message means:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSExchangeTransport
Event Category:      NDR
Event ID:      3008
Date:            11/28/2006
Time:            3:50:51 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      ROLLINS
Description:
A non-delivery report with a status code of 5.0.0 was generated for recipient rfc822;someone@email.com (Message-ID <2FDD167180D6644DA6EC40900F2F995101326ACA@rollins.ForcedExposure.local>).  
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.

Hi forcedexposure,

Is someone@email.com a legitimate address?

If so, can you put both your domain and their domain into http://www.dnsreport.com - fix any problems you have, and then try it again

If it is not a legitimate address (someone you are not trying to email) then you should look at some form of recipient filtering

Hope that helps,

Hi Red,

That email address is bogus - I didn't want to leave a contact's email address on Experts-Exchange.

I'll try what you've suggested above and get back to you.

Thanks! Kristin

>>That email address is bogus

I figured that you munged it, what I wanted to know is if it was a legitimate email address you were actually trying to email, or if it was something you have never seen before.

I assume it is legitimate, in which case, check out their and your domain (I can see one problem already, but we will see what DNS report says)

Hi Red,

Thanks for the advice. I've bookmarked that DNSreports.com page.
Turns out that our collegue is having problems with his mail server.

& I was concerned because we were having problems with our mailserver recently.

Thanks again for your help!!

Best, Kristin
