The CEO is getting these errors as he has sent emails to several users and included a user no longer in the company (Meaning that email no longer exists) But he still from time to time received emails from exchange (Bounce backs). How can I get it to stop? Its emails that were sent months ago and he is still getting these bounce backs below?

You can't stop them, other than telling users to stop sending to invalid addresses.
There isn't a way to stop Exchange from generating them.

The most common reason for this error is auto complete information being used - so clearing out the entries from there would probably help.

That's the thing.  The user does not send emails to this user.  These messages are coming from emails that were sent a while back from what he says.  I've deleted the users email from his contacts so he does not select it by mistake

That can only mean it is a delegate somewhere and needs to be tracked down.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

User the message tracking tool on Exchange and specify the failed recipients' email address and a date range overlapping the times that the emails were sent so then you should pickup who sent it.

N.B. Don't enter anything under the sender's email address.

He wasnt a delegate but I looked at all the rules in the CEOs mailbox and it forwards that user some emails. So the issue was due to being in a forward rule on OWA.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?
