Recreated User In Exchange 2013

Looking in ADSI Edit, I noticed something strange; there are extra characters (underlined) in the “problem” entry’s legacyExchangeDN attribute.  Below is a normal working entry, followed by the entry for the person who isn’t working.

  • /o=x Exchange Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=x
  • /o=x Exchange Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=x1adea201

Should I use ADSI Edit to remove the 1adea201 from the end of Dori x’s entry?

No, don’t use ADSI edit to alter the legacyExchangeDN.

As Andy says add the correct entry as an X500 address – To do this, open the recipient in Exchange Management Console, go to the E-Mail Address tab, click on the drop-down next to “Add” and choose “Custom Address”.

Enter “/o=X Exchange Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=x” in the E-mail Address field, and then enter “X500” in the E-Mail type field.

BTW, you can do this at the Exchange Management Console using a command like:

Set-Mailbox “X” -EmailAddresses (((Get-Mailbox “X”).EmailAddresses)+=”X500:/o=X Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=username”)

The above is useful if you have a few to do.
