Hi Everyone,

We appear to be having a problem sending an email from one user to a customer.  Others users can send it to the same address no problem.  We don't get any bounce back emails but I have checked the log for any strange activity and cannot find anything.  I have attached some of the entries within the log if somebody could please have a look it would be greatly appreciated.  We are running exchange 2003 and the user sends the mail from outlook 2007.

1. make sure you are typing the complete email address instead of selecting one from 2auto complete list". some time wrong email address is given in Auto Complete list.
2. is there any local spam filter setup on the local PC like bitdefender or any other?

You could also have the recipient send the user in question an email and then they could reply to it to see if it goes. That way you have the for sure email address of the customer.

Try to send email from Outlook web access and trace from Exchange system manager (Messaging tracking)

In this case, you can approach the below steps

1. Use SMTPDIAG   ( smtpdiag /?) - You will get all options and switches - Check the result
2. Contact sender (person) has they enabled anything on their gateway server at user level. Ask him to add to their safe sender list.
3. For testing purpose, change the email id with adding any extra char and try to send.. they will confirm the problem with old id.

It seems the recipient is using Postini or Google Apps for their email filtering. In Postini/Google Apps every user could maintain their own Whitelist/Blacklist. Please check with the recipient if they would have blacklisted the senders email address by mistake.

I hope that would help.
