I'm in the process of migrating our environment from Exchange 2003 to 2010. For a while now, I have been receiving messages from, most of which look like this:

To: Me


Subject: Blablabla


Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:


The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found. Please check the recipient's e-mail address and try to resend the message. If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk.

Diagnostic information for administrators:

Generating server:


< #5.1.1> #SMTP

Original message headers:

Received: from iis_server ([IP address]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.4675); Fri, 30 Nov 2012 06:11:54 -0800 MIME-Version: 1.0 From: Someone To: Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2012 06:11:54 -0800 Subject: Blablabla Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Return-Path: Someone Message-ID: X-OriginalArrivalTime: 30 Nov 2012 14:11:54.0667 (UTC) FILETIME=[A6AB37B0:01CDCF04]

I received another message today that I believe was supposed to be quarantined (subject line was just [QUAR]) that was for another user entirely.

Why am I getting these?

Your email address is designated as the email address to send a copy og NDR's to on the Messages tab of the Default SMTP Virtual Server on your Exchange 2003 server.

Herp, thanks very much. No idea why that would have been configured like that. I've removed my email address and presume I won't see these anymore. Thanks! – NaOH Nov 30 '12 at 19:24
