This is not really an error but an information. Your Exchange server was unable to deliver a NDR (non-delivery report) to the following address: rlidbeck@gs1noa.comx
I assume the sender mistyped his own address (comx), then your server is unable to find an MX server.
I think you should skip this error, unless you have many different users/domains

Nobody, it's your own server who tried to report to user "rlidbeck@gs1noa.comx" that the mail this user sent to your organization was not able to be delivered.
