"550 5.6.0" NDR when you send a yearly recurring meeting request in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3Exchange Server 2010 StandardExchange Server 2010 Enterprise


Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable journaling in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment.
  • The journal mailbox is an external contact.
  • You send a recurring meeting request. You select Yearly and a certain weekday of a month for the recurrence pattern.
In this scenario, the journal mailbox receives a non-delivery report (NDR) message that contains the following error message:
#550 5.6.0 M2MCVT.StorageError; storage error in content conversion


This issue occurs because a failure occurs in MAPI to MIME conversion when the journal mailbox is an external contact.


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
