Undelivered Message from a deleted user in Exchange2003

I deleted this user account about 2 weeks ago. However, I got a report from a user that this NDR was generated. Why would Exchange reply back?

            The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to.  Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.

    They were probably on a user list from outlook or somewhere.  Was the message bounced back after the user sent out a message to a DL?

    It could also be a Delegate problem - which would be true if you got this bounce while sending out a meeting notice

    Actually, it was my boss who replied to accept a meeting notice. When he replied to accept the meeting, he gets this NDR from a user account which I already deleted.

    Question (1): How is this a delegate problem?
    Question (2) : Can you give me more details on what the cause of this is?
    Question (3): How can I fix this and prevent this from happening to other users?
