Teams email invitations not sent when the participant is in the same domain

Copper Contributor



When we're setting up a meeting, if we add a colleague who shares the same email domain with us, we noticed that the email invitation is never sent to that user. However we are able to send email invitations to users with different email domains. 


So all in all, suppose I have an email address like mark [at] and I create a Teams meeting with joe [at] and john [at], the first participant will get the email while the second (which is in the same domain as me) won't.


Using Exchange Admin's Mail flow, this is the output I get for the message that wasn't sent to my colleague.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?


Thank you in advance.

I'm going to guess that there is some configuration in your mail flow that is blocking it. The simple fact that it shows received definitely leads to that conclusion.
I agree with you but you have a look at the IP addresses a bit below, the destination IP is null, which makes me think that for some reason MS cannot resolve the domain.
