SMTP$ err. w/ NetIQ Exch migration

We're migrating an Exch5.5 organization to another Exch5.5 organization using NetIQ Exchange Migrator.
After migration NetIQ creates a custom recipient on the source pointing to the target mailbox (pending change of the MX record) but it makes a mistake: the forwarding address it enters is SMTP$user@target.com.  I can manually change it to SMTP:user@target.com (and it works) but this changes one of the incoming addresses.  I can manually reenter this also and all is well.  Except for doing this for each of 300+ accounts.
I've never heard of SMTP$ and NetIQ hasn't either; sound familiar to anybody?

Not seen that before but to avoid editing the 300+ accounts manually you can export the directory to a CSV file, run an Excel macro on it and then import it again.

If there is more than one email address per account then you need to follow the export proceedure in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q148339
