Can you please post the headers of an email from the problem user and obscure the email address / IP Addresses / Domain Names etc.

Thanks

Well - the obvious answer is that the mailbox doesn't exist - but it may be that the mailbox server is clustered and one of the clusters is missing the mailbox and needs updating.

Are you sure the address is still valid?

Yes, the address is valid, I wrote above that this mailbox can receive emails from internal users but from outside - no. Other mailboxes of this domain can receive emails from outside, but this mailbox - no.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Are you using a spam/content filter?  Some of the cloud based services allow you to configure it so only valid email addresses can receive mail.  The problem is that you must maintain your addresses with the service.  Is this a new mailbox or an existing one.

Are you able to send email from the address to your outside account?  After receiving a test email from the internal account to the external one, do a reply back to the sender.

Can you find the messages in Exchanges Message Tracker?

There is no spam/content filter.  This is not new mailbox, this is existing one. In the beginning of March this mailbox was moved from one mailbox database to another. I can receive emails from this mailbox, but when I click reply and send back, still receiving 550 5.1.1 User unknown
