Hi guys,
Im running Exchange 2003 and on the client computer im running Outlook 2007.I sent an email to a client yesterday and when they replied on it they got a bounce message saying that the message could not be delivered. But I receive all emails! How can i solve this such that the receiver stops getting this 'false' bounce messages?
I have checked that
1. my imailbox is not full. Its infact almost empty
2. On the exchange server, the space quota for all users is quite big.
I will appreciate your thoughts and knowledge :-)

do you have a forward set on the exchange as if you do it could be in relation to this forward address? you need to get the client to send you a copy of the bounce message that they receive for us to know more.

There is no forward rule created. The two people(sendee and sender) are actually not on same network. They are actually at different companies.
I hope i got your question right :-)

I have requested the person with the bounced messages to forward to me then i will post it here shortly.

Karllangstone, you were right!!
Sorry i had not checked that there was a forward address related to this particular email.
The receiver (A) had in the past another user's(B) email forwarded to him(A). User B no longer works in the company and so the maill account is no longer operational. But because the forward rule was still there, that is what was causing the bounce messages. Now I have removed the forward and it works fine.

Thank you!!
