Last Modified: 2008-01-09
We are using SBS2003 and have added a user but their email addresses etc. are not populating and they are not found in the GAL.  Even if I add them manually it doesn't work.  I have tried to edit the recipient poilcy, rebuild and update but still no joy - any ideas?

How did you add the user?  With the add-user wizard?  If so, which template did you use?

Also, did you log in with the user's account yet?  You need to do that for the mailbox to be created.

That would do the same thing as logging them in, I guess.

I think its a known issue with SBS.just wait for a day or so and It would appear in the GAL.

It's not an SBS issue, it's an Exchange feature.  That behavior is by design.
