Looking at Books On Line and wanted to send some feedback so I clicked the "Send Feedback" button. Outlook responded with a new email with the To and Subject line already filled in. After entering my text and hitting Send, I got a return email from microsoft saying that the mailbox did not exist:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:
The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found. Please check the recipient's e-mail address and try to resend the message. If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk.

The following organization rejected your message:
(additional info here not pasted)

Frustrating that it appears that Microsoft doesn't care enough to update the email address for this feedback, or at least put in a fowrarding address for this account on their server.

You are correct that this is not a great customer experience. This feedback system was discontinued quite a while ago, though we can't keep customers from seeing the old link in old content. There was a nice message to customers for a while, but that has now aged out as well. You can submit feedback via the connect system, or you can add a comment to topics as they appear in MSDN. Sorry for the less than optimal experience.
