I did check the Junk folders for each user.  Nothing there.

This has happened for recipients on different servers.  Completely
confusing issue.

Hello all,


   Recently - I have been getting reports that messages sent to random
different DL's are not being delivered to all members of the DL. The
members are all internal employees - no external addresses. 


   I can run a message trace in the Admin Console, and it shows the
messages being delivered successfully, but when searching the users'
maibox (including deleted item retention and PST's) I can not find the
messages.  Generally this type of issue can be chalked up to the
recipient accidentally deleting it or moving it - but not in these


   On top of this, we have an e-mail archival service that keeps a copy
of all e-mails sent to or received by a user (Frontbridge Continuity
Services). Even in this utility, the messages have not been copied to
the archive which leads me to believe the message was not delivered.


   So - any ideas why Message Tracker shows the message as having been
delivered to the store but never actually showing up in the recipients
mailbox?  Oh - I had this occur once last week when a message was sent
to about 30 people (no DL) and all but one of our employees received it.


Very confused and I welcome your input.
