Ok this is the weirdest thing I have seen ever! I just created a new user and tested her account for internal and external emails. The messages eventually do go through, after a significate delay, but I get back and OOF reply from a completely different email address and domain! The only thing the new users has in common with the OOF replay is her name. I set up a user we will call "Tori Smith" with format TSMITH@domain.com and got back an out of office reply from another Tori Smith with email formate TORI@otherdomain.com

The data below is the email header on the OOF reply I get. I changed the names to protect the innocent, however how could this even be possible? How could I fix this if the rely is coming from another companies server? How could a server be directing mail by the users name alone? I thought that was cosmetic? BTW we use Exchange 2007

I would check public DNS. where is the MX record pointed for the domain your sending to that is on your exchange server?

Thanks for the reply....but it was my mistake. The user had a previous job and ended up in my contacts, probably when I was practicing transferring contacts from one user to another. Anyway, I emailed her at her old job which has OOF answering back. As soon as I emailed her properly the email went through
