undeliverable (DSN) messages not arriving

Hi,

In our Exchange2k7-Outlook environment : Whenever we send a mail out to let's say "userdoesnotexist@somedomain.com" we do not receive the "user does not exist" DSN return message.

When I use message tracking on our Edge server it shows a record with the following :

Eventid : DSN
SourceContext : Failure
MessageSubject : undeliverable *subjecthere*
...

Why does it say Failure ? I have no idea where to look next.

On our HUB server we have :
-Exchange builtin antispam options enabled (I see no traces of blocked msgs in postmaster mailbox)
-Forefront Server Security (this generally only blocks foul language etc. and shows no traces of blocked NDRs)

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

jessmca : I think you're talking exchange 2003.
I checked Exchn 2007 > Organization Conf > Hub Transport > Remote Domains > Default properties and there all the NDR options are ticked.

Ok...here's a screenshot in hope someone might still shed some light on this :


The screen is the message tracking window on our Edge server.
You'll see that the undeliverable messages are disapearing in some black hole.

Problem solved : On the edge server I noticed using Get-TransportCopy that under the parameter "GenerateCopyofDSNFor" the value 5.1.1 was not present (in other words no NDR messages were generated for "user unknown" situations).
