Hello,

User mailbox had been deleted, so I don't have his "Member of" tab any more. Now, how can I find which distribution groups he was a member of, so I could  delete him to avoid "Delivery has failed to these recipients..." error message when emailing to this or that distribution group.

Thank you!

Try this:

Launch the Exchange Management Shell

Copy / Paste (Change user@example)

Get-DistributionGroup | where { (Get-DistributionGroupMember $_ | foreach {$_.PrimarySmtpAddress}) -contains "user@example" } 

Open in new window

Hello,

Once you disable the mailbox, AD account will lose the exchange attributes. DL will not deliver any emails to that account.

Once you remove the mailbox, AD account will be removed from DL.

There wont be any NDR until unless exchange attributes are not cleared properly.

Thanks for your help! The advice with a command line

Get-DistributionGroup | where { (Get-DistributionGroupMember $_ | foreach {$_.PrimarySmtpAddress}) -contains "user@example" }

from Ryan Lanham was the best.
