Hi Experts,

I got a user (company owner) complaining about some emails not getting delivered to his mailbox.

I made 2 tests - one internal and one external, and both got into his mailbox.

Some hours later he still complained about the same problem. I decided to do the same test and for my surprise the external email was rejected:


Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

     user@domain.com.br

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.7.1 Recipient not authorized, your IP has been found on a block list (state 13).

As the error stamp, i guess it was the exchange anti spam, "ip block list provider" . Am I right?

How can I track emails that are been rejected from my Exchange?

Some tips to set a correct anti-spam configuration? I mean, i want a "light" configuration... i prefer that some spam get into my organization than legitime email get rejected.

Look if its your IP and the Recipient Domain has that it would still no harm checking and ensuring your fine ..... and anyways they can well be as these Public domains have a lot of issue with email as i have seen over the years

The NDR that you have posted is not an Exchange NDR.
Therefore it is coming from something else.
Furthermore, if the problem was from the Exchange server then all email would be rejected.

Check your MX records, ensure that you have only one. If you have more than one, where does the other one go? That is probably the source of the problem.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

This NDR was from google. I sent a test email from gmail to my company mailbox.

My MX is OK. Got only one.

I know the NDR is from Google, that is how NDRs work in most cases, they are generated by the server sending the email. However the message in the NDR is generated by the recieving email - the text in the NDR is NOT from Exchange. That means it is either from another server or a third party product installed on your Exchange server.

Have you ever had more than one MX record?

Is is ok. And as I can see, only one mailbox had this problem... at least only one user complained..

It isn't a per mailbox error, as the message is being rejected at the point of delivery. It isn't Exchange, so it has to be something else.
