256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
Some messages may not be delivered when they have been forwarded from one recipient to another recipient in your Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 or Exchange Server 2003 organization.
This problem may occur if all the following conditions are true:
The message is originally sent from the Internet to an Exchange Server 5.5 recipient.
The message is forwarded by the Exchange Server 5.5 recipient to another Exchange Server 5.5 recipient.
The message contains a "Message-ID" field in the SMTP header that is not RFC-compliant. For example, the problem can occur if the "Message-ID" field is very long.
The problem occurs because the Exchange Server 5.5 store incorrectly detects the forwarded e-mail as a duplicate.
