I have had to remove two mailboxes from users in my domain and recreate their mailboxes. Now I can getting bounce backs to say "this user no longer exits in the organisation". This mainly happens for users who are on another exchange server but still within the same exchange organisation. Users here can use OWA to send mail and it works just fine. Users on the same organisation have stopped getting bounce backs. I have rebuild rus for the domain who are still getting bounce backs, deleted individual Oab files and downloaded the offline address book again, with no joy. I also deleted the users in question from the nk2 nd no joy. Strangely enough, I have users setup in groups based on the dept the are in, if we pick the users name from here in the global address list in outlook, the mail doesn't seem to bounce, however, if I type the users into the GAL search box, then it bounces.
Finally, I have looked at the email addresses properties in outlook for this particular user on the effected domain and compared what I am seeing in my outlook and the order of the email addresses are different.....on my end the order of Emily addresses are as follows: SMTP: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the effected domain:
Is the a400 effecting it in some way, it's exchange 2003 by the way
