I have a real doozy here. I am no Exchange guru by any means, and have never seen this problem.

One of my clients has been trying to reach me. She sends a new email, no attachments, nothing special, to me, but I never get it. She does get other emails, she can send to other without issue too. I never get her email.

If I email her, and she replies, I get the email fine. Just new emails to me and I suspect others are not going out.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You will probably also find that she is using outlook's autocomplete.

Make her type out your full address - not letting it finish it for her, and not using contacts

I did have her type out my address, actually to two of my addresses. There are no rejections, no events, nothing states that the email has failed reaching me.

Her outgoing settings are fine, she does get other emails without issue.

I logged into her account via OWA, sent out two emails to my two accounts, never got them. Did the same from a coworker of hers, received them in seconds.

So it is isolated to her account it seems or my email server is rejecting her, but why? I have no filter like that, junk mails are all accepted but moved the the JM folder. Her email are no where to be found.

Open Exchange System Manager (from the server), from the left go to 'tools' and select 'Message Tracking'.

PS ... If Message Tracking is not enabled, go to Exchange System Manager, Administrative Group,Servers. Right Click, Properties on the server(s) where both you mailboxes reside and tick 'Enable Message Tracking'

Send a test mail from her account to your mailbox. Fill in the details and launch a search to track down where the mail is going. It may take some time, depends on the setup.

When search is finished, the mail is supposed to be listed with the results. Click on the mail and wait till it retrieved the details (all steps done by the mail). If it's stopping, at least you'll know where.

If it's not listed, then mail is not reaching server and problem could be the her Outlook Client.

Thanks! I followed your steps Noc and found the messages. It says an NDR report was generated, so a non deliverable. Where do I go for that info? Log on as the Administrator email account and search for the NDR?

Thanks
