Users getting delivery failed when sending to a specific user

Posted on 2011-10-06
Last Modified: 2012-08-22
I have a user , will call him user-a, that is not getting any meeting requests sent to him.
When other users try and send a meeting request to him they get a delivery failed report sent back.

This User-A has no proplems sending out meeting requests or sending/receiving normal email.
Only problem is that he can't get any meeting requests sent to him.

I am running a Exchange 2007 server on a 2008 server.
And my users are running XP with Outlook 2007.

    I went through this solution.

    And I did not find anything wrong with the legacyExchangeDN attribute on the user.

    As per bounce mail its showing timeout error. just dismount the database and remount it also try to reboot your server. please also tell us about your exchange design if it is in clustering or what. there may be some permission issue also ..

    Author Comment

    there is no clustering.

    It is just a single Exchange 2007 server
