Is it possible to have an x400 address with no smtp address in the offline address book? I have a lot of contacts in AD all without smtp addresses, these dont appear in the oab.  I have checked through the event logs and noticed that these addresses are being skipped because the smtp address is invalid ie: not there.  Is there anyway that I can change this behaviour so that x400 can be added to the address book without an smtp address?

Unfortunatly all of exchnge 2003 mail routing is done via smtp, so all mailboxes and contacts need an smtp address.
