Trouble sending vCard internally in SBS2003

I am trying to send a contact as a vcard to another user on my SBS2003 network and it won't let me.

I get this message:

You do not have permission to send to this recipient.  For assistance, contact your system administrator.
            MSEXCH:MSExchangeIS:/DC=local/DC=mydomain.

Anyone?  Thanks

Normally you wouldn't send a vCard internally, but just "Forward" the contact.

Can you do that?  

What version of Outlook are you using?

no, we can't forward it.  It's Outlook 2003...thanks
Do you mean to say that when you select "forward" from the Action menu it gives you the same error message?  

If so, does it do that for anyone you try to send it to internally?

Yep.
Any Ideas?
Is this happening with ALL contacts?  Or just one?  
Is this happening for ALL users?  Or just one?

What folder is this contact in that you're trying to send?  Is it listed in YOUR contacts?  and is the contact list designated as an Outlook Address Book?

Because the error you are receiving is the same that you'd get if you didn't have permission to send on behalf of.

Hi Jeff,

It's happening with all contacts for just a few users.  I just tried with mines and it works fine.  It is an Outlook Address Book as well, but so is mines and it works.

thanks for your help
Anyone got any other ideas?
I'm sorry, but you didn't answer my question of what folder the contacts are in that users are having problems sending to.

Jeff, sorry.  I missed that part.  I see that there is the outlook.pst file in the users c:\ but all the users are set up in exchange so I am figuring that it getting eveything from the server no?  How can I check?
Well, I wasn't even asking about things at that level, but it's interesting that there is even a file called outlook.pst in the C:\ root directory.  

What is the "modified" date of that file?  Is it current?  (which would indicate that it's being used).

Then, see where the Exchange Account's "deliver to" is configured.  In Tools > Email Accounts > Change...

Make sure that the "Deliver new Email to the following location" box has "Username - Exchange Mailbox" selected.

But let me get back to my original question about "which folder".  I was referring to which folder in the Outlook Folder Tree.  If you display "all folders", is the contact folder in that person's Exchange Mailbox?

Acually, there is no .pst file, you're right.  They are all going to the exchange server.  Anyways, on the folder do you mean in Outlook or the actual hard drive loaction?
It's in the person's exchange mailbox
Okay, I think I have the problem solved for you...

Please check:

Default SMTP Virtual Server > Properties > Access Tab > Relay Restrictions > Relay...

This should be set as "Only the list below" and have three IP Address entries.  Then, below that the box which says, "Allow all computers which successfully authenticate to relay, regardless of the list above" should be checked.

Please advise if the box was not checked.

Thanks for the help Jeff...

Anyways, I checked the Default SMTP... and it is checked the way you said, "only the list below", and "allow all computers which successfully......".  They are both checked but, one thing, there is only 2 IP addresses:
         
         My local server address...192.168.1.x
         and 127.0.0.1

Why would there be the 127. format in there? and what should be the 3rd IP address...thanks

You're the man Jeff.

Sorry for all the back and forth, this one should have been worth more than 250 points.

Thanks,
