CIT has fixed the problem with bounced mail sent to EGAs. Some mail may need to be resent, but in many cases the mail was in fact delivered despite the bounce message.\n\nEGAs that were configured to receive mail to their own mail store received mail and generated a spurious bounce message.\n\nEGAs that were configured to forward mail to other recipients have two cases:\na) other recipients with @cornell.edu addresses were *not* delivered and a bounce message was returned.\nb) other recipients with mail addresses external to Exchange *were* delivered, and a spurious bounce message was returned.\n\nThe problem was precipitated by an unanticipated side-effect of enabling Reference Groups for email permissions. We apologize for the confusion this has caused.\n CIT has fixed the problem with bounced mail sent to EGAs.
