  • Question

  • hey guys, i have an odd one here from a client

    They sent from their outlook to a gmail account, and this is what they got in return

     

     

    Generating server: exmail.domainx.com

     

    mrY@gmail.com

    COL0-MC4-F48.Col0.hotmail.com #550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable ## <-------?o_O

     

    Original message headers: 

     

     

    Received: from exmail.domainx.com ([172.16.1.20]) by exmail.domainx.com
     ([172.16.1.20]) with mapi; Wed, 5 Oct 2011 12:27:29 -0400
    From: mrx@domainx.com>

  • A forward most likely. Something like that.
    It could also be a contact in the Exchange system with that Gmail and Hotmail address.

    I don't use a newsreader at all. I am just viewing the forums through my browser.
