Hello,
The email box is Exchange 2000 (latest SP), and the clients are all using Outlook 2003, SP3.  I have a with one user account that when anyone emails her meeting invitations within Outlook, they get a bounceback with a 5.1.1 error stating "The following recipient could not be reached. The email account does not exist in the organization that this message was sent to."  The user that this bounceback specifies has been removed from the organization a while back, the Exchange box has even been purged.  I tried searching AD for the account, and couldn't find anything out there referencing this user.  I'm starting to suspect a client or server-side rule, but wanted to check with you all first, since this user's gone for the day and I don't have remote access. Thanks

Sounds like the address in question is being pulled from a group or a distribution list. I would check all AD groups to make sure the old address does not exist in any of them.

That was the first thing I checked, I went through all of the distro groups, nothing... But if a user is deleted from AD, doesn't that take their info out of all of the groups that there were a member of?

I think that's it, I just have to figure out what user had the delegate setup and get into their account, but that looks right on...  thanks!!
