When using a distribution list in Exchange 2010 we reveive a "Delivery has failed to these receipients or groups" eror. Each user in the Staff group is shown with en error below their email address that reads: "The recipient's e-mail system isn't accepting messages now. Please try resending this message later or contact the recipient directly."

To duplicate the problem, I set up an appointment in Exchange 2010 Calendar using Outlook 2007. I added the staff group as required. I UNchecked "Require a response".  When I press Send, I immesiately get an Undeliverable return message.

At the top it says : Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

It then lists each staff by email address, and underneath each email address it reads: The recipient's e-mail system isn't accepting messages now. Please try resending this message later or contact the recipient directly.

This happened after the migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010. Nothing has changed with the exception of the domain controller which is still publisihing the same DN, but The server IP and Name (of course) is different. DNS has remained the same... GHowever, the issue was still happening before running dcpromo on the old DC to demote it...

Just FYI, We have tried two different ways of deleting and recreating the group. Same issue each time.

If you select the users individually - does it work then?
If so then it has to be something about the delivery restrictions on the group, probably something set by default.

I just tried that.. It did fail, but oddly enough it only failed on five out of eleven names.
With the failure I revceived this error:
#550 4.3.2 Transport.Rules; message is deleted by mailbox rules ##

MesthaCommented:
That would tend to be rather self explanatory. A transport or mailbox rule is deleting the message. You will need to look in Exchange to find the cause of that.

The rollout package for Exchange 2010 from MS should be the cirrect response...
