One user can't send FROM one distribution group - "You do not have permission to send to this recipient"

Hi,

I have a user that all of a sudden has been unable to send an email From a distribution list to any members or other groups.

We are running Exchange 2003 and the list is a global Distribution list. The user in question is a member of the list and has been able to send using the From field in Outlook for years now.

This is only effecting one user and one distro group. Everyone else is ok.

The error he gets is:

You do not have permission to send to this recipient. For assistance, contact your system administrator.

thanks.

That user wasn't on the send as list as I just included Authenticated users which covers everyone.

I have also removed the distro list and re-created it and I still get the same issues.

No.

I have manually added this user to the group and given him Full Control and he still can't send as.

Ok,

after some further testing I have found that it is Machine based as I logged in as this user on another machine and was able to send emails from this one distro group fine.

I have also just created a new test DL and this user was again not able to Send As. I then checked the Send As perms with another distro list that does work with this account and every setting is identical, and I mean identical!

It is fixed and what an odd fix it was...

The user in question deleted the distro list nickname that shows up in Outlook and then was able to send.

We had already tried typing the address in manually, using the nickname and pasting the address in from a text file and none of these worked. Deleting the nickname fixed it completely.

BTW I have found a rather useful freeware nickname editor.

It is called NK2View and is available here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_autocomplete.html

The nickname file is in %userprofile\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and has a nk2 extension. Please heed the warnings about backing up your file before using this application and note we didn't use it to solve this issue. I just thought it would be handy for others.
Although we resolved this issue ourselves (through luck more than skill) I am going to split points between everyone who helped because  appreciate your input.

Thanks for the update and the solution, I will make a note of that one... So the DL must of changed or been recreated or something...
