Exchange 2000 duplicate email addresses

Posted on 2003-11-03

Last Modified: 2006-11-17
When I try to send an internal email to a specific user, it is redirected to the BadMail folder with the following message:
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.
It also logs an event Source: MSExchangeIS ID: 9514 which tells me that Microsoft System Attendant and Public Folder Store have the same proxy.  
My problem is that I do not know how to remove the email addresses from these 2 objects.  They do not appear in Active Directory Users and Computers, and Exchange System Manager does not give me an option to modify email addresses.  
Thanks for your help.

NewWizard, thanks for your comment.  However, I've already checked  those kb articles to no avail.  I am able to find the objects in Active Directory using the ldp.exe utility, but when I attempt to remove the problem smtp address, I get a "Modify: Unwilling to Perform <53>" error.  I don't know if this is a rights issue, or what (I am in as Domain Administrator).  Any help would be appreciated.

I've finally figured this out.  I used ldifde to export all the attributes of the Microsoft System Attendant and Public Folder Store, then created an import file that removed the unneeded proxies and imported it, and it worked!  Internal emails are working fine at this point.

No, I did not use those steps.  I used ldp.exe to find the problem objects/attributes in the directory, then created my own import file from there, and ran "ldifde -i -f importfile".  However, that kb article eventually led to the solution, so I will award you the points.  Thanks for you help!
