One user cannot email another inside company

We have a single Exchange server and Use Outlook 2007. For some reason one user is unable to email one other specific user inside the company. Lets call them users A and B. So user A can email anyone else inside and Outside the company, everyone but user B. User A gets no errors or bounce back messages.

Are you sure they aren't going to B's spam folder? Does B have any rules set up?

I am, I added both users accounts to my Outlook so I could send email from user a As user B and I get the same result. I checked the spam or junk mail box and neither of them have any Outlook rules setup.

Go to your exchange server and run the exchange management console.  Choose toolbox from the options on the left side and then run the message tracking and mail flow troubleshooter and see if that shows you what might be wrong.

On my server I have something called Message Tracking Center. It gives me some fields like sender and recipient.

It displays the database on (servername) is not available or the message has left the Exchange organization

If user A not received any bouncing email mean the email was already reached User B's mailbox.

There isnt a PST file its direct Exchange connections.
How do I use the message tracking? Under tools, message tracking center, it gives me a screen where I can enter Message ID (which I don't have) Server, Sender and recipient. I add the info I have and get.

database on (servername) is not available or the message has left the Exchange organization

And yes the Email addresses are correct.

I tried sending a message from User B and then replying I get the same result
