Hi, @davidm58 ;

This error can occur if you use the format for the User Name (Example: ).domain\usernamecontoso\user

Resolution
Within the Credentials section of the Email Server Profile record, use the UPN format (Example: ) for the User Name instead of format.user@contoso.comdomain\username

If the User Name is in the UPN format and you still meet this error, verify a mailbox exists for the user and the UPN value in the User Name field matches the email address for the user's mailbox in Exchange.
