Find an SMTP alias? - 5.Jun.2000 11:09:00 AM   
Guest
Hi folks,

I've trying to assign a particular SMTP alias to a new user, but have discovered that it is already assigned to another exchange account. Unfortunately, I have no idea which account it's assigned to.

Are there any utilities that will allow me to search the Exchange DS and find which Exchange mailbox has a particular SMTP alias assigned to it?

Hi

I have had the same problem a couple of times. Normally what I do is to go to outlook, go to "compose new message" and then in the "To" field, type the alias and click on "Check Names" This will resolve the alias to a user and then you can right-click on the underlined name, go to "properties" and it will give you the details of that user.

Hope this helps

Regards

Postman

HI Mr.Postman,
I have the same problem with you and I do all the same as you said. The name was checking and there is underline. But I can't find any mailbox for this alias. How could I delete this one and create new mailbox.

Create a header file and add the field "Secondary-Proxy-Addresses".
Then run an export of the GAL to this header file, open it in Excel and search for the alias.

Is it possible that this mystery mailbox is set up as a Hidden Mailbox? In Exchange Admin, go to View and put a check mark next to Hidden just to confirm its existence.

Go to the servers container , then server recipients... You should be able to see all the e-mail addresses... BUT... You may need to go to view / columns and select the e-mail adress field ... ALSO... The reply before mine about hidden recipients also holds true... Quite often the cause...

Hope this helps..

Here is how I did it when we had this need:


1) Run Microsoft Exchange Administrator
2) Click on Global Address List
3) Make sure View/All is checked.

4) Make sure View/Hidden Recipients is checked.
5) Make sure "E-Mail Address (Internet) is a displayed column. If not, add it by choosing View/Columns
6) Highlight all rows in the display
7) Choose File/Save Window Contents and save file as "c:\ex1.csv" for example

8) Make sure View/Hidden Recipients is unchecked.
9) Highlight all rows in the display
10) Choose File/Save Window Contents and save file as "c:\ex2.csv" for example

11) Use a tool like Notepad to search the resulting .CSV files for the address you are looking for.

You can use any LDAP search utility to search Exchange. This should return the First and Last names for the mail address.
