I have a user who recieves email for another user. He is not setup in AD to receive the emails nor is he BCC'd into the email. Also, it is not all of the emails that the inteded user gets. It is just the spam email. Has anyone seen or heard of this? Does anyone know how to stop it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

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

Do you use a spam filtering software? Could the first user be selected as the recipient of quarantined email in this system?
I think we would need to know more about your situation, I.E. what email system (Exchange, LotusNotes) is in use and what filters or services does your mail flow through?

    I am running Exchange 2003 R2. I do have a spam filter in place that outside mail has to go through. The email is not being quarantine both users are getting the email. The email is only intended for one recipient no cc's or bc's or bcc's. I resolved the issue as far as the spam goes. When I looked at the spam management console. the intended recipient was added to a whitelist to accept all messages. I deleted that. However, I cannot figure out why the unintended party was getting the email in the first place. Thanks
