Some of my users, who are using using outlook XP 2002 are getting a
non-delivery reciept from the local exchange server, when they try to send

a while, before it re-occurs. Someimes the user cannot send any messages to
any users, local or remote, and sometime its just a few local users.
I have removed the .pst files from outlook on the problem machines, and
