Exchange Servers Admin >> Duplicate SMTP addresses in our Exchange org.

Hey everyone,

We are running Exchange 2003 in a Windows 2003 cluster and a Windows 2003
domain. We have two domains (one for Students and one for Fac/Staff). All
staff have an email enabled AD acct. in the Fac/Staff domain. Some staff
aslo have an AD acct. in the student domain that is NOT mail enabled.

However, some program that the student side is running needs the AD accts.
to have an email address so what the Admins on the student side did was to
add the staff member's email address to the "E-mail" field on the "General"
tab in AD (they did NOT email enable that acct). That has worked for them
for over a year.

Last week it stopped working and email started bouncing back with the
following error:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: Test
Sent: 6/28/2007 10:43 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

Rick J. Welch on 6/28/2007 10:43 AM
A configuration error in the recipient's e-mail system prevented
delivery of this message. Two recipients are configured with the same
e-mail address. Contact your administrator.
<MAILVS1.mydomain.edu #5.1.4>

Like I said, it's been working for over a year. Even when we go over to the
student side of AD and remove that email address ftom the "General" tab we
still get the same error.

I've used adsiedt and looked on the student side AD object but there was no
reference to the email address in question. Anyone have any ideas how I can
get rid of that conflicting email address on the student side (the side that
is NOT email enabled in AD)?

Clayton

Exchange Servers Admin >> Duplicate SMTP addresses in our Exchange org. I didn't see an answer to this, so...

Have you searched your entire ORG (the reporting MTA org/ your post makes it
look like there's one domain for each) for the address to be sure it's not
just on the user objects but maybe somewhere else?

joeware.net tools can be really helpful when searching for duplicate smtp
address on objects. :)

Yea, but you search for smtpproxyaddress, you wont find anything since
that isnt the attribute used in AD.
