If you send the mail to a distribution list, check the members of the list in AD (do this recurently for all the DLs members of this DL) and, if present, remove it from there.

Furthermore, you can export the "altRecipient" field for your AD users and check if one of them has this unknown user set as alternate recipient.

In this case I would use adsiedit.msc to view the properties of the accountas the ADUC console might not show it.

May be the Mailbox is deleted for that particular User, or ACCOUNT is disabled.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Mentioned address for user "CN=Sudh S\0ADEL:0434641a-f5e2-4588-a8d8-c3bc1610e492,CN=Deleted Objects,DC=Development,DC=Group,DC=co,DC=uk" is deleted.

User Name: Sudh S

Also it seems to be moved to "Deleted Objects" OU of AD (could be part of User Accounts deletion process). But somehow it is not deleted completly from AD.

Use adsiedit.msc and try checking in mentioned OU. Or check in "LostAndFound" OU available in AD users and computers (viewable with Advanced Features Mode).

Or it is also possible, Outllook users (working in cached mode) are sending email to cached name whose mailbox/account is deleted!!

Yes that is also a possibility, I mean, in Outlook Client Frequenet Contacts , there might be an entry which is no longer exists.
Check it and clear it from there.

And checked in Users and computers there is nothing inside "LostAndFound" OU

Have you been able to check the Alternate Recipient values of the DL members?

You could check to see how many users in your domain have alternate recipient by performing a custom search from the Active Directory Users and Computers console.

To do so, you could follow the next steps:
- from ADUC, right click on "Saved Queries" and choose New / Query
- fill the Name and Description fields of the Query
- click on "Define Query"
- in the Find drop down list choose "Custom Search"
- select the "Advanced" tab and paste the following LDAP query:
(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*))) )))(altRecipient=*)))
- click Ok on both the open windows

Your new query should return only the users in your domain that have something set as Alternate Recipient.
If it's just a few of them, you can check in parallel with ADSIEdit the value of the "altRecipient" field. Use ADSIEdit as with ADUC you might not see the corrupted value.
If you have many entries, I will show you how to perform an export with these users and check it afterwards.

Results an error

The query filter "(&(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*))) )))(altRecipient=*)))

I tested this in my environment and worked. Anyway, I checked manually the query and got a different version for this which is shorter:
 (& (mailnickname=*) (altRecipient=*) (| (objectCategory=person) (objectClass=user) (homeMDB=*) (msExchHomeServerName=*)))

Try this one please.

The shortest query would be:
 (& (mailnickname=*) (altRecipient=*))
