Every case I've found this error, it turned out that someone in the DL
was unable to recieve mail, whether the account was disabled, deleted,
etc.. I wish DL's were able to follow Active Directory so that when
someone leaves, DL's reflect that, but they don't. You have to manually
do it. I've heard Exchange 2003 has better DL capabilities.
If you send to the "ALL" DL, do you get the same error?

        A few of our users and all new users being created are unable to
send to the "All" distribution list. They have no problem sending and
receiving to other lists, however.


        The following is the NDR that is generated:

        The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not
report a specific reason. Check the address and try again. If it still
fails, contact your system administrator.

        < #5.0.0>


        I researched the Microsoft site for assistance to isolate this
problem, but the error 5.0.0 is too generic. They suggested installing
SP3 to get additional error reporting; however, I already have ExchSvr2k
SP3 applied.

        Any feedback you might have on this would be appreciated.
