Hi,

a customer was running SBS2008, which I migrated to Exchange 2013.  The old SBS was deinstalled, demoted and removed from the domain.  This was about two months ago.

Recently I installed a new firewall system (Sophos sg) with an SMTP proxy that receives and scans and forwards all mail.  I am finding in it's queue many messages going from NO SENDER to inboundproxy@contoso.com.

The log sais this:

HealthMailboxfed50d91c7c042958d086b53575e0dd3@internaldomain.local
The entered email address could not be verified. Check the email address of the recipient and try to send your message again.  Ask helpdesk if the problem persists.


Diagnose information for administrators:

generating server: mail.internaldomain.local

Remote Server returned '550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipNotFound; not found'

Hi,

Exchange 2013 is using Health mailbox for health monitoring, and they are located in AD/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/ Monitoring mailboxes.

Do you have them in there? Maybe something went wrong with them, and they are deleted or something.

They can be recreated, but before doing that, maybe check to see if they do actually exist on your server.

Regards,
Ivan.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Yes, I have that.  Looks just like that, only that it's 14, not 12 entries.

Hi,

I found article below, with explanation of "problem". As it seams this is "some what normal" and there is no special solution to it.

Take a look: http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-server-2013-inboundproxy-com-ndr/

Maybe someone else, has some addition info on it...

Regards,
Ivan.
