not all, but a mixed bag.

RDNS matches mail server location.
can you check message tracking for the failed emails.Also does this users run some thing different on their PC's to that of the normal users.
Also if possible check the spam filtering logs.

well, the outbound queue is clear and running normally, so if that's the case,
is it another setting?
Check the thing which says tracking the messages.You would have logs only if the message tracking is enabled.
On the Problamatic machines can you stop antivirus software for a while and test it.
Do you use any spam filtering software?

Somehow the Exchange server just fixed itself.  Must be gremlins.
However, I did do what you stated, just in case for the future.
Thanks Much.
