Not personally, but perhaps this Q article can be of some assistance...

Q316204: XCON: Messages Back Up in Queue When the Virtual Server Is Set to 
Forward All Messages with Unresolved Recipients

When the Forward all messages with unresolved recipients to host option is set 
on a virtual server, if you send a message to an unknown EX or X500 address 
similar to the following 

an event ID 4000 is written to the Application event log with the following 
Handle file is invalid 
Other unresolved messages may also back up in the queue.

An example of this scenario may be when a user replies to an old mail message 
from another user who has been recreated or migrated, and who no longer has the 
same legacyExchangeDN or X.500 proxy address. 

The RCPT TO command is not issued to the remote host because the recipient has 
not been encapsulated in SMTP format. 

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Exchange 
2000 Server. For additional information, click the following article number to 
view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 

Q301378 XGEN: How to Obtain the Latest Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 
The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or 

File name Version 
Phatcat.dll 6.0.5770.31 

NOTE: Due to file dependencies, this update requires Microsoft Exchange 2000 
Server Service Pack 2. 

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 
Server. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server 
Service Pack 3.
