    I got a user in my organization who is receiving emails sent to a certain
    public address(). Last week she told me she doesn't
    want to receive emails to that address anymore. So, not knowing how she got
    the emails in the first place I had her forward me an example, I looked at
    the headers then found this was a distribution list in AD (Windows 2003).
    She was a member of this list. Well I removed her but she says she is still
    receiving emails sent to that address. I do not know how this could be. I
    looked at her account properties and this address isn't listed as an
    additional SMTP. On the original DL, I already removed her from the "member
    of" tab. I am at a loss on how to proceed

  2. How long have you left it since making the change? Could be a replication
    latency issue...

    Is RUS working properly? Does she have another account forwarding to her

    First step would be to track one of the messages through the message
    tracking centre of ESM.

    It's been over a week. No latency issues...

  5. Are there any nested groups? She could be in another group that is somehow
    nested into the DL.
