I have a user that has one person that was not receiving his email- no kickbacks no messages nothing.  The receiving party's IT person told my user to fully type in the email address and it worked.  The guys email address has a really long domain name so its a pain in the ass to re-type every time.  Can't select from cached email address or even reply to an email from this guy without fully typing in the email address.  I have never heard of this behavior in 20 plus years in IT.

There has to be a better fix for this.

Any ideas or knowledge of this situation?

If he is replying to old emails, ask him to fill in the address manually as well. Also make sure that the user doesnt use any predefined entry in the GAL/contact list (or update them with the correct address).
