Non existent user won't go away

When sending an invitation to another with Calendar, this message appears: (The person receives it however I get this message)...

The recipient's e-mail address was not found in the recipient's e-mail system. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please check the e-mail address and try resending this message, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

I don't see this person on delegates or anything in anyone's Outlooks either.

Is this persons mailbox within the same Exchange Organization? IE: is this person within your company?

Was yes, i've deleted that person's NT Account and mailbox from the Exchange. i have a feeling that it has to do with "delegates" but couldn't find anything in the "existing" persons outlook.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

not sure what you mean. here's the scenerio: I sent a meeting request to Mike (works here for 1 yr). Julie, his ex-assistant left the company 4 months. I deleted Julie's account/mailbox 1 month ago. Now when I send a new meeting request to Mike, I get an "Undeliverable" that Julie does not exist.

That's the story... i cannot find any objects referring to Julie... help.....

Go to his to his exchange advanced tab on HIS user properties and see if there is a SID in there that it doesn't recognize. If there is, delete it.

Check Exchange General Tab> Delivery Options and see if there is a "Send on Behalf" SID or User in there. Delete it.

See if that shows anything.

During off hours you may need to do some mailbox maintenance.

Use eseutil ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/192185 )

I have seen strange things like this when the mailbox DB's needed maintenance. Check the size of the DB's first it is not a quick process. I had to do mine AFTER backups (3:00am) and before everyone got in. It was taking about an hour for every 5G if I remember correctly. Maybe less. The article above worked like a charm...

DO A BACKUP FIRST WITH YOUR BACKUP UTIL.

Let me know how it works.

Still no go, which switch should I run for ESEUTIL?

/d will rebuild the DB. That is all I have used in my defrags.

You say still no go... after a defrag?

It also sounds to me like the problem isn't coming from anything to do with the ex-employee's account. I would focus on the individual you are sending to.

I would focus on the user first who you are sending to. Even in ADSIEdit.

I would look in AD first though

Hi all, just one more thing: This almost certainly is a phantom delegate issue. Need to have each delegate make sure they do not have a delegate's delegate set up

I've deleted the user from active direcory as well as from the exchange server. So I wouldn't be able to view anyone's delegates. if i view the person that is having this issue, the box is empty. So i'm still thinking I can fix this issue with ADSIedit, any idea how i would find this problem in ADSIedit??

I've finally fixed it. Here is how I did it:

RESOLUTION
 If the removed delegate still receives meeting requests, or if senders of meeting requests receive NDRs, follow these steps first:
 
1.      In Outlook, when you are using the mailbox where the delegate was previously established, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click Delegates.         
2.      Click Add, and then click the delegate that had been removed if the name of the delegate is available. You can select another user in the Global Address List if the original delegate has been removed. Try to establish the same permissions that were previously used, if you know what they are. Then, click OK.         
3.      Click OK to close the Options dialog box.         
4.      Restart Outlook.         
5.      On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click Delegates.         
6.      Click to clear the Send meeting requests and responses only to my delegates, not to me check box.         
7.      Click the delegate that you had re-added, click Remove, and then click OK to close the Options dialog box.         
8.      Restart Outlook.         
9.      Send the user a meeting request. Then, make sure that the meeting request was not sent to the former delegate.

I think this is a valid solution. Rather than delete it, can't we allow this to remain posted?
