Exchange 2003 Messages Bouncing

Hi, I am having problems with a Windows 2003 SP2 Server with Exchange 2003 SP2 on it.  It keeps randomly bouncing messages with the following error;

            The e-mail address could not be found.  Perhaps the recipient moved to a different e-mail organization, or there was a mistake in the address.  Check the address and try again.
            <Exchangeserver.domainname #5.1.0>

I thought first of all that it might be a problem with the Nickname file on users but replying to the received message sometimes gets this error.  I have turned on Exchange logging and cannot see the message in the Exchange log, I also confirmed with our ISP that they did not see the message go through their mail servers but they did my other 4 messages to that recipient.

The server was originally promo'd in from a Windows 2000 domain and all 2000 servers have now bee removed from the domain.  There is just this Exchange server and another Windows 2003 Std server in the domain, any ideas folks before I raise a case with Bill Gates N Co....

Is this internal or external email?
Do you have recipient filtering enabled?

Hiya, we do not have recipient filtering enabled and the bounces can come from both external and internal addresses sent to the Global Address List.

Thanks

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I dont think so.  I have had a look online to see how to tell and I cant see any signs of it.  Do you think an offline defrag will help?  Straighten things out maybe, any other ideas?

Thanks again....

I would be surprised if an offline defrag would help. That is database maintenance, this is a transport error.

You may want to look at this eventid.net report on the error: http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=327&eventno=1730&source=MSExchangeTransport&phase=1

It shows a number of possible causes including rules. For rules it could also be event sinks, which are installed by third party tools.

Hiya, I have got this sorted today via Microsoft Support.  It took a lot of testing and a 3 hour conversation to get it going!  All it needed in the end was an ISinteg.  All working now though, it seemed the databases had corruptions...

Great!  Thanks for your suggestions though.
