The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

  The message could not be delivered because the recipient's destination email system is unknown or invalid. Please check the address and try again, or contact your system administrator to verify connectivity to the email system of the recipient.

Take a look at this article.  It explains more about recipient policy and smtp addresses.

Hi

Are you sure that the policy is:

%1g%@domain.com

%1g@domain.com would create an address with just the first letter of the given (christian) name. I.e. John Smith would get given an address of J@domain.com.

The second % sign may be ignored but TBH I am not sure!

The possible entries for a recipient policy are:

%g  = givenName.
%s  = sn (Last name).
%4s = means first four letters of sn.
%d  = displayname.
%m  = Exchange alias.  

If you look in Active Directory Users and Computers, has the user been assigned an address?

Cheers

If you are getting an NDR but the user it still receiving the email, I would check the "Exchange Advanced" tab in ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers) check that there is no Forwarding address in Delivery Options.

Also check that the user doesn't have any Inbox rules setup (either check in Outlook or OWA).

Cheers
