Our domain (eg: xyz.com) has got POP3 and exchange account users. The exchange server is exchange 2003. Recently one of the users exchange account was shifted back to POP3 account and I have removed that user from AD users and computers. I was able to configure his POP3 email account, but when our exchange internal users send emails to him, it bounce back with the below

  IMCEAex-_O=ENHANCEUAE_OU=FIRST+20ADMINISTRATIVE+20GROUP_CN=RECIPIENTS_CN=
i then deleted the mailbox also but when i checked in Exchange Systems Manager and mailboxes I can see his mailbox there. How to solve this issue?

Add custom X500 address in this user properties with old legacy exchange dn value. For more details check this:

For 2003 you need to use dsa.msc snap-in. Search for the user, goto properties, under email address tab, you need to add X500 custom address.

just wanted to inform you that I had deleted that users mailbox and now there is no email address in properties

my question is

1) do we need to create a mailbox in "exchange tasks"
2) if so how do we get the details of legacy exchange dn value?

Yes, you need to recreate the mailbox again. Legacy dn value you can get from bounce back message.

csvde -f c:\users.csv -r (sAMAccountName=AnujP) -l "name,givenName,sn,displayName,sAMAccountName

then added the value in emaild id and type as x500.
