We have a client that when sending an email to the new employee, he gets a message in his drafts box that looks like:


Both of these people are on the internal network where the exchange server is located. this problem isn't happening with anyone else sending to the new employee...

I can't find any info on Google that tells me what this means in order to make it stop.
Thanks in advance!

I would suggest that you start by shutting down Outlook, finding any files with the extension oab on the workstation and deleting them.
Then start Outlook.

You will need to remove the entry from the nicknames cache as well (Start typing, then press down and delete). Select the user from the GAL fresh.
