When I create new users, they have no email addresses.  But I can delete and recreate their mailboxes, but still do not have addresses.  If I manually put in the addresses, it doesn't help.  The usere is not able to log into the mailbox.  I have deleted the users and recreated them, and I have restarted the servers.  I have tried forcing the default policy them with no luck.  Please advise.
