Change Email Address in Windows SBS2003

Hi,

We are running Windows SBS2003 and exchange server with a pop connector to email.  We have a user who would like to change their email address.  The easy part is changing the address with the hosting company and in the pop connector.  What I can't figure out is how to change the email address in SBS itself.  In other words how to I get the default email address that shows up under the "manage users" window to show the new address instead of the old one.  I have tried to change this through the "Email Addresses" tab in the user properties window but I can't get the change to stick.  Within minutes it defaults back to the old email address.  

Thanks for your help!

Not changing this for a recently married lady by any chance?

Recipient Update Policy is probably changing it back.

ADUC, Right click on the User and Choose Properties. Click on Email Addresses and enter the new email address. Switch it to default. Unless the user wants to dispose of the old one completly you may want to leave the old one in place.

Then deselect the option at the bottom that says something like "Automatically udpate email addresses based on recipient policy". Apply/Ok out.

Simon.

Hi Sembee,

No, just changing an address for a user who doesn't want their first name to be part of the address.  Anyway, your suggestion worked like a charm! I'll close the question and award you the points!

Thanks again,

Ari
