We have just installed a single Exchange Server 2000 (Windows 2000 Server SP2) on our network. All the basic functionality including internal & external mail is work fine. We created some public folders and gave the smtp alias such as firstname.lastname@example.org. These tested okay. While testing we decided to delete these folders in System Manger and recreate them almost immediately.
However the smtp alias is now email@example.com. If we try and edit the smtp address back to firstname.lastname@example.org we get an error indicating the object already exists error c10312e7.
I have search technet for this error and found article Q280765 this explains how to find the rogue objects. Using the instructions I can search and prove there are several variation of my address eg
help 2432323 email@example.com
help 5646473 firstname.lastname@example.org
You can't delete these from the search results, I have hunted high and low throughout Active Directory and System Manager, Search the registry but can't find any referance.
I then applied Exchange 2000 SP1 (forgot to do it earlier). I have also ran ISINTEG with the -fix option.
None of the above has fixed my issue, If any one has come across this problem and fixed it I would appriciate the solution.
Thanks In Advance
