Hello ,

We have a hosted Exchange 2007 SCC fully updated for our customers and i have a strange problem with an organization . This organization has a distribution list with about 6-7 users inside.  

When an email for a specific external domain is been send to this Distribution list all users inside receive the messages except 1-2 users not the same everytime , that they don't receive the messages or they receive them after 30-50 minutes. Also they take this error  " Your Server reported a UID does not comply IMAP Standard " 

Any ideas ? This behavior is driving me crazy.

Thanks a lot

If its the same DL we can try to take LDP for attribute dump and DSACL's dump for permissions

I would say if its one DL simply retire the current one wait for replication and then create a new one

Just for kicks move the mailbox's to another database if your able to. Last time I saw something really crazy regarding UID it was mailbox corruption on the backend + the user having a rule to move messages sent to them to another folder.

Try moving the mailbox and see if that works.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I change database but problem continues , strange thing is that the problem is triggered by a specific external mail domain that goes into the distribution list.

Is Outlook 2002 being used?

I found this URL reporting what sounds the same.
