We are in the middle of migrating 9 Exchange 5.5 servers to Exchange 2003. All exist in the same organization, all servers are separate sites. We have found a problem in one of our most rececently migrated sites. A public folder, which once could be directly emailed either internally or from the outside, now immediately generates NDR's when you send mail to it. Below is the text in the NDR DADispatch on 9/27/2004 8:20 AM The message was undeliverable because the recipient specified has changed address permanently and forwarding was not applicable <mercurye2k3.safewayins.com #5.1.6> I have searched high and low for an answer and do not have any other ideas. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I found this in a newsgroup:

Numerical Code: 5.1.6
First Available: Exchange 2000 Service Pack 2
Possible Cause: One possible cause is that the user directory attributes such as homeMDB or msExchHomeServerName might be missing or corrupted.
Troubleshooting: Check the user directory attributes integrity and rerun the Recipient Update Service to make sure attributes required for transport are valid.

Use ADSIEdit and look at the attributes of the specific public folder in question and see if these attributes are correct.

Hope this helps…
