Your Message Has Been Delivered

IN SBS2003 R2, I am having a problem with confirmation emails that say "emails have been delivered" It is server side and I am pretty sure I have ruled out all of the usual suspects. I can't figure out where the message is being generated from.

Thank you

Does it look like this?

Your message
      To:      <recipient>
      Subject:      <subject>
      Sent:      <date/time>
was delivered to the following recipient(s):
<recipient> on <date/time>

In which case it would be that a delivery receipt has been requested on the mail. This is configured in Outlook, and it may be set to either automatically request such a receipt or the user is selecting the option when they send an email. There is a box to check/uncheck for delivery receipts in the email "Options" panel (or on the Options tab of the ribbon in Outlook 2007)

It says your message was delivered to the recipient followed by their signature. The email also has an attachment called details.txt

it says original message-ID ##########

Does it happen to everyone, or just a few users? Do you get it from every message you send or only when you send messages to a specific domain or recipient?

If it's only when to a certain recipient, then it is likely something is running at their end which is sending out delivery receipts even when you have not requested it. The fact that the signature of the original recipient is there would indicate this. It can also be confirmed by examining the message headers (In the message Options option in the receipt)

Does it actually say:

Final-Recipient blank@blank.com
or
Final-Recipient: rfc822;blank@blank.com

?

Is there a Blackberry involved in any of this?

I am having a similar issue, however it happens all the time with 1 recipient and randomly with others.  There is a Blackberry involved in my setup.

This is a receipt for the mail you sent to "Ken"
<k***2@comcast.net>; "George"
<G***n@b******s.com> at 10/17/2007 11:53 AM

This receipt verifies that the message has been displayed on the recipient's computer at 10/17/2007 12:14 PM

Okay, I'll do that.

I just assumed that we didn't want to have 2 duplicate questions in progress.

"I just assumed that we didn't want to have 2 duplicate questions in progress."

Either just click the "Monitor Question" link at the top to follow along, or post what you've done to try to resolve this which has or hasn't worked.  But just posting a "me too" comment doesn't really help with the outcome.

Ultimately, the original asker must accept a comment as the solution.

Anyhow...  the reason that I asked if a Blackberry was involved was because I had come across this forum post which links this behavior to Blackberrys and Outlook:
