We are running Small Business Server 2008, with Exchange 2007 built in.

We've just taken it over from another local IT guy.

They have emails for going straight to their account.

There is no Reception account setup in Mailbox, under recipient configuration and under the Admin account, there is no mention of the Reception account.

Open an Outlook client connected to the Exchange server, type in the "To:" field and press CTRL-K; this will resolve the SMTP address to the Active Directory user account (or contact) it's associated with. From there, you can investigate.
