      Thanks For your Reply

      I need to write a new Policy baced on users finding, We are going to exmaerge the ost file of the user mailbox to a pst file. Then delete the User. The question is When I send an email to a delete user i get the following

      The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.
      <Emailserver#5.1.1>

      How can i stop this? Is this something to do with send NDR?

        Don't delete the user!
        Or add their email address to a live user account
