Exchange 2007 replication issue?

Hey Experts,

I'm received the Event indicated below. My environment is a mixed 2003/2007 exchange environment since I am in the middle of a migration. This even started on a random day when I was on vacation so I have no idea what triggered it:
On the new 64bit Windows Server 2008 / Exchange 2007 Server the following repeats every minute
"A message deliver to public folder store "Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database" with message class REPORT.IPM.NOTE.NDR is being dropped. "

My searches have not turned up anything useful.

Someone has set NDRs to be delivered to a public folder, which is not possible, the messages will be dropped as you have seen.

However on a more serious note, I have seen this happen when all public folders generate an NDR during the replication phase. Microsoft were unable to fix it and the client ended up having to write off their entire domain so we could rebuild it with fresh permissions.

It was a little shocking for the client as well.
Fortunately their domain was a mess (not for profit which had no regular IT maintenance until about four months before I was asked to assist) so we rebuilt it from scratch and they had a single full day down. Paid off for them in spades though, as the network management becomes so much easier almost overnight. 70 machines, all of them touched in a 36 hour window and brought up to date (yes we went overnight).

well, I think I may have solved it. I looked into the Queue viewer today (harder to find int 2007 if you don't know where to look!). There was a message sitting in there address to PublicFolderStore@domain.com. I did a google and some threads came up in reference to replication problems. I wound up deleting it, seeming harmless enough. It's been a half hour and the problem hasn't come back.
