Recreated Mail Account cannot receive mail

Posted on 2013-01-09
Last Modified: 2013-01-09

I had problem with my email account so I decided to delete it and recreate the account with all the same attributes.
Now when people try to send me a mail. they receive non-deliver Mail.
But if I send a mail to a person, then the person can now send me a mail.

I'm looking for a solution to fix this problem so that all users will be able to send me a mail without receiving a non-delivered email.

I think I know the answer for this. Please ask those users to delete the particular recipient email address from their outlook cache and type it again/select from GAL to send mail.

Ok,  Is your primary email address and users using email address are same?

For example your email address is but they are using to send you an email. Here they will get NDR.

If you are sending mail to them and they are replying to that which means they are replying to your primary email address - it works 100 %

Please double check once.

Most welcome.
There is no problem with your mailbox since you are able to receive mails when they are replying. Only problem with the email address they are using either wrong one or cached one (though it is a same address NDR will get generate if x500 is different).
