SharePoint 2013 ULS error: Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: 5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send as this sender

We encountered this error (Mailbox unavailable) while setting up the newsfeed notifications for SharePoint 2013. We solved this by creating a receive connector in Exchange 2010 with the following settings:


Default information


we added our SharePoint server IP’s


Authentication settings


And the following permissions groups.
