We use our ISP's smarthost to Spam check and forward our emails to my Exchange serevr, first people I approached and they blamed it on my Exchange.
I have also delibrately sent a mispelt email and the same sort of NDR gets returned.
I suspect some of the addresses are not updated on my ISP smarthost flter and emails not getting through as a result
My Exchange 2010 allows distribution groups to recieve emails externally without the need for authentication
I also nicked one of the distribution external email address and applied it to my mailbox, test externally and I get a similar NDR.
Any ideas? Could it possibly be my end in this case?
Thanks as always.
PS I have over October half term changed reply email address globally since we gone academy, but not sure whether that makes a difference

Have you configured the groups to only allow delivery from certain groups to prevent students from sending mail to these staff groups?

I'm getting my ISP to check thier email forwarding, I do have a suspicion something is mucked up with thier address book in the SPAM filter

You say you changed reply address globally in half-term - does this mean your mail domain name's changed? If this is the case you'll have to change (or add) the Authoritative domain address in Organisation Config -> Hub Transport -> Accepted Domains, otherwise your Exchange will assume it's being asked to relay and give you a 550 5.7.1 error.

In exchange go to the distribution group - go to mail flow settings -message delivery restriction and untick all users need to be authenticated. this is enabled by default on exchange 2010 and essentially means internal only (unless the external manages to auth against your server).

All working until today (send to individual mailbox from yahoo - ok....send to distribution group from yahoo - NDR)...wierd

interestingly, the external email address that belonged to one of the distribution group, now works when applied to my mailbox...
ie firstname.lastname@example.org > MrWu@school.surrey.sch.uk ...now works when an email is sent to email@example.com (no NDR and email arrives at my inbox)
firstname.lastname@example.org > finance distribution group ... NDR 5126.96.36.199
anywhere I could take a further test?

do they look to specific ou? distribution group in a different one?

Sounds like it's your ISP then - I have a vague memory of a similar thing happening here and turned out their mail relay DNS was hooky.

My ISP is as useful as a chocolate heatsink and as far as they tell me they pull a automatic LDAP enquiry based on a list of users pulled from admin and teacher staff OU...at one point a chunk of it went missing a few weeks ago, meaning load of emails that staff and parents sent in from externally went missing or NDR, they blamed us on the change of OU we did in Summer! Like how often does the LDAP update?

Since the SPAM filtered passed that through ok? Woud the SPAM filter know distribution group mapped to what external email address?
However, It does take 15-20 minutes for the above tweak for my little test to work, making me think the SPAM filter is doing something inbetween.
Also using the new email@example.com external email NDR as well when applied to distribution group.

The NDR you have posted doesn't contain the full status code, the issue to me seems to be with your ISP and their sync process. They may be only syncing certain objects/objectclasses i.e User and not DL. Or something may have changed which does not sync all that is expected.
As for moving the non-working DL SMTP to your account, which then seems to work, says what I suspect above.

Just be a long struggle getting my damn ISP to sort it....they send me a test email and says everything is ok...I keep telling them it's the Distribution Lists lol !
