  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im pulling out (whats left) of my hair...we have a issue where some emails are getting bounced

    The format of the e-mail address is incorrect.  Check the address, look up the recipient in the Address Book, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.

                <xxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xx.uk #5.1.3>

    I have deleted account, re created.. removed email address, change email address added a second email address.. all with same error.  user can send fine.
    Also, any users that were created more than 3 weeks ago are fine. Nothing has changed on systrem (as far as i am aware).
    Any one got any suggestions?  ( I can give mre details if needed)

    TIA

  • Just FYI.. half Fixed this.

    Had to remove mailbox attributes from accounts & then re-add mailboxes, can now send & receive from broke accounts.   Still need to figure out why they were broke.

  • Just a addon .. these accounts have been created using CSVDE.. If I create manually, emails work fine...Ive looked at csv & it is fine... no extra spaces in email address...

    Pick one mailbox that's a problem and run this against it:
     
    (get-mailbox nameailaddresses | foreach {
    write-host "`"" -NoNewline -foregroundcolor yellow
    write-host $_.ProxyAddressString -NoNewline
    write-host "`"" -foregroundcolor yellow
    }
     
    It'll surround the entire proxy address with a quote (makes it easier
    to find leading/trailing spaces).
     
    Perhaps you have more then one primary address for an address type
    (e.g. two "SMTP:" instead of one "SMTP:" and another "smtp:"). Or
    maybe there's no primary proxy address for an address type (i.e none
    of them are in upper-case).
     
    If the data came from a CSV you should also check for more than one
    "@" in a SMTP address, or a trailing apostrophe at the end of a SMTP
    address.
