Message Tracking problem in Exchange 2016

Dear Wizards, I got this EventID when tracking the mail from Sender to Recipient in the same domain: (MS Exchange 2016)

Timestamp              EventId          Source        Sender                Recipients            MessageSubject       
---------              -------          ------        ------                ----------            --------------       
4/13/2018 11:31:02 AM  HAREDIRECTFAIL   SMTP          thinh.v@xxx.com  {hai.tm@xxx.com} FW: LAM    
4/13/2018 11:31:03 AM  RECEIVE          SMTP          thinh.v@xxx.com  {hai.tm@xxx.com} FW: LAM

Open in new window

What is HAREDIRECTFAIL ? In this log, can we confirm that the message was delivered or not? If not, how can we confirm that? Many thanks!

HAREDIRECTFAIL -  is A shadow message failed to be created. The details are stored in the source-context field.
This doesn't stop the mail from being successfully delivered. Its just a redundant copy of the original message but delivery doesn't depend on that.

You can't tell from the data you're providing although it does look like a successful handoff to the recipient server.  You should add RecipientStatus to your output so you can verify a 250 response was generated for the SMTP Send event.

Glad I could help.  Take care :)
