Thanks, but that didn't say much.

I ran the dnsstuff spam database lookup, and we're all clean except from gremlin.ru, there's two entries for that.

I tried to contact them to remove us as being labeled as spammers, but there's no contact info for them.

Besides that, not sure what else to do.

do you have a transport rule configured that could be blocking it?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Have you checked your Message Tracking Logs in Exchange to see why it was rejected?

If nothing shows up there check any message hygiene / anti-spam you may have.

Also, check the SMTP Receive Protocol Log. Its usually in your default Exchange install path under TransportRoles\Logs.

how exactly do I check the message tracking logs, do you have the powershell commands?

I tried using the GUI, but it's worthless, it doesn't have any capabilities to search any logs.
I just don't understand Microsoft, seems like the software goes from bad to worst.

How do I search for emails by subject, or specific date/time, or sender/recipient, etc...?

You could use this powershell command:

Get-MessageTrackingLog -ResultSize Unlimited -Start “Nov 2 2012” | Out-GridView

Open in new window

Ofcouse you can use other commands and filters on the Get-MessageTrackingLog commandlet to wittle down your specific search criteria and fields returned.

Thanks, I tried that first command, but it's not the best, as it doesn't allow me to narrow down my results.
I tried to add -subject, but it had some errors when running.

What was the command you used with -Subject???

Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventId deliver -Sender "email" -subject "has sent you an evite" -Start "2014-10-15 11:00" -end "2014-10-20 11:00" | out-gridview

I think you meant this:
Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventId deliver -Sender "email@yourdomain.com" -MessageSubject "has sent you an evite" -Start "2014-10-15 11:00" -end "2014-10-20 11:00" | out-gridview

Great, so how would I do if I have the recipient email address only?

Like this:
Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventId deliver -Recipient "recipient@domain.com" -subject "has sent you an evite" -Start "2014-10-15 11:00" -end "2014-10-20 11:00" | out-gridview
