SharePoint online sends alerts to Deleted users hence emails (no-reply@sharepointonline.com) get blocked by exchange admin as this email address tries to send email notifications to non-existent emails ids.

 

Even email notification for check in pending document of deleted users are also generated and sharepoint sends emails notifications for the same to non-existent emails ids, hence no-reply@sharepointonline.com get blocked by exchange online.

Sorry, I'm not following the logic of why no-reply@sharepointonline.com is being blocked by Exchange Online because it's sending emails to deleted users.
If it is happening - why not whitelist the email address or domain?

Yes, you are right. But I am wondering - Why sharepoint online is sending User Alerts emails to deleted users?

For eg. If 'User A' has subscribed any Alert. User A has left the organisation and has been deleted from the system/sharepoint. Still sharepoint should send subscribed email alerts to deleted user A?

Solution

Finally I found some email notifications were being sent to DELETED users from drop off library.

 

Once I deleted all user alerts and drop off library documents of DELETED users, now no email notification is being sent to deleted users.

 

Thanks!!
