A previous admin had created a mail box that forwarded to a distribution group.  I did not like the implementation so removed the mailbox.  I deleted the group in AD and then used power shell to delete the disconnected mailbox.

I then created a distribution group properly, and mail enabled it for external senders.  I did however use the same email address for the distro that was used for the traditional mailbox that I deleted.  

External senders can send to it fine.  When internal senders try to send to it, they get a kick back.

I have cleared the old address references from the Outlook cache on my test machine with no luck.

The NDR is below
