Hello,

Staff Members in our company are receiving e-mails to their mailbox that is received by our exchange server for a terminated/non-existing employee.  

in the example listed below, a current employee receives an e-mail that is addressed to an employee that no longer exists, "deletedstaffname@company.org".  Nothing shows up in Active Directory, Exchage or  Disconnected Mailbox,  Even searched ADSI Edit and cannot find any reference to the non-existing employee.

Question:  How would Exchange 2010 Ver 14.02 accept mail for a non-existing employee and then to send it to another staff member's mailbox.

Below is an example of a header one of our Staff member received.  
No where in the header does it reference the current staff member's e-mail address
only the non-existing address.

(the server name and ip address have been changed except for the received from:)
