NDR message from user no longer in AD

Hi,

The users keep getting a NDR 5.1.1 message from a user who has been deleted from AD over 6 months ago & is no longer a member of the particular group. The username does not show up in AD when you do a search. The NDR activates only when a meeting request is sent for this particular group.

Exchange Server 2003 - Outlook 2003 /2007

Then make sure that the user is not listed in that group
Open the group you may find an SID, simply remove it

This is a delegate problem - check each of the users in that group (check their outlook settings) and make sure the old user is no longer listed as a delegate.

If you have sufficient rights, you can run this script on your domain to list all delegates on the domain:

ldifde -f C:\delegates.txt -d "ou=users,dc=domain,dc=com" -l name,publicDelegates,publicDelegatesBL -r "(|(publicDelegates=*)(publicDelegatesBL=*))"

Change the section for your domain information, and also add the right file name (delegates.txt in the example).

This code will dump all AD objects in the "Users" ou to a file, where those users have either publicdelegates or publicdelegatesbl set. A description of the two attributes:


publicDelegates - This attribute stores the user that was configured as a delegate (the secretary).
publicDelegatesBL - This attribute stores the user his mailbox that was configured with a delegate (the manager).

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

That command would be fine - except that Users is a container and not an organizational unit

I have checked the delegates & this user is not listed under any of the other members of this group.

The delegate can become hidden if deleted from AD. You can try this if your group only has a few members:

1. Go to their machines, export Inbox rules to a file on desktop.
2. Start Outlook from the command line with the switch "cleanrules"
3. Send an email to the group, see if that solves it. If needed, re-add the rules by importing from the desktop file.
