Ghost email address


Recommended Posts

We are on server 2003. Running Exchange. The problem is that we have deleted an old user from the server. The entire profile, and from all distribution groups etc. Now when people send a meeting mail from outlook 2007 to one particular user it also tries to send to this old email adress which is no longer present. So it will send to the correct recipient and also send to the old user as well and then we will recieve an undeliverable mail for the one adress and the present party will recieve the meeting mail.

I suspect that it could be linked to the calender since I have not been able to find traces of the old email adress anywhere. This problem has been going on for about 4 months now and still no solution.

try to see if the old user was granted access to the agendas of other users... office doesnt remove those rights when you delete the user, which means that outlook will always still try to mail the deleted user as long as he/she is granted access to other peoples agendas.
