I have a domain user who is having trouble sending email to recipients he's not sent to before.  The bounce back message he gets is - the recipient's destination email system is unknown or invalid -  if he receives an email from someone he's not sent to before and replies to it, the mail gets through with no problem.  What could be hanging up his mail and causing this?  
Using Exchange 2003 w/Outlook 2007 for clients.

Could you post the bounce-back message verbatim on two or three of the errored messages?  It would also be helpful to see the message headers of the mail that was rejected.

Bounce back message is - Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      GFI Maintenance Renewal
      Sent:      4/7/2009 4:09 PM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

      'TFornefeld@nautilus-ins.com' on 4/7/2009 4:09 PM
            The message could not be delivered because the recipient's destination email system is unknown or invalid. Please check the address and try again, or contact your system administrator to verify connectivity to the email system of the recipient.
