Calendar Summary Emails Driving Us Crazy!

All,
Thanks for your help with this. One of our customers keep receiving Calendar Summary email alerts with his cell phone in the recipient or rather a recipient that could not be reached. We did some research on this online and everything we found does not seems to make these emails stop coming from Administrator. We checked the SMS service but its off, we checked all contacts or meetings for his cell phone as a recipient but non could be found. This is madness :)

Here is the email we are receiving:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

 Subject: 11/16 Calendar Summary
 Sent: 11/16/2014 4:01 AM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

 '858XXXXXXX' on 11/17/2014 5:32 AM
 None of your e-mail accounts could send to this recipient


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EE.

Are these alerts only coming to the phone? Or are they also coming to his Outlook?

If just to the phone I would recommend removing the Exchange account from his phone and then try adding it back.

Atredivo, I just tried it all but all Mobile settings are not set so no matter which one I click on, it asks me to activate mobile service.

I looked at Cal type and its not a shared one...

Any other ideas?

Commented:
let me re-state the problem - you state "one of your customers".  That implies to me that you're renting mailboxes or exchange services or soemthing, which is great, but, these are not your end users.  You said that this customer is getting emails from "administrator" on his mobile device.  You stated that mobile is not even turned on in your Exchange server.  so that implies to me that these emails are NOT coming from your server but some other server.

Is it possible that your customer is subscribing or sharing a calendar from someone/somewhere else?

Commented:
Also, in an email there is a lot of hidden information but this is an SMS right? so we're probably not going to get the FQDN or ip address of the sender

We are an IT service provider, this is for one of our customers who host their own Exchange server on-site.

I think I found something, since I am on client site today, I went to accounts and click manage mobile notifications and from there being pointed to OWA. Once we logged in to OWA we cleaned up the phone and ipads list and enabled the notification to text service. The idea is to give it 1-2 days and then disable it, maybe that will take care of the problem.

My option B was to look in Exchange 2010 for mobile settings for this user, maybe there is a place it is setup on the EMC or something. Not sure...

Thanks for your reply.

p.s. And its the Administrator account on the Exchange that is generating these Cal Summary emails.

OK quick update, this thing is getting weirder and weirder. We have installed Office 2013, and for few days it was quite, then yesterday we got a bounced back email, but a little different it was from MXlogic but it had the cell phone email on it... related?

Here is the email:
From: Mail Delivery System [mailto:MAILER-DAEMON@p01c12o148.mxlogic.net]

Seems like this could  be an unrelated problem to me. Did he send a text via email?

I guess thats what he was trying to do or maybe the OWA email to text feature.
