Replying problem

A client just reported this to me; haven't looked into it yet. All I know right now is hat they're on a Windows domain with Exchange 2003 most likely.

A user sends an email to multiple recipients.  She collects these recipients by clicking the “To:” field, then selecting them from the Global Address List.  When a recipient of that email tries to “reply to all”, some of the reply addresses are their .local addresses and not their Internet email addresses, even though the primary email address in their AD record is their Internet address.  Where is that “reply to” address controlled?  Some are correct, others are not.

I'm guessing that the "Reply To" address might need to be corrected from somewhere within Outlook but again I haven't looked into this yet. Anyone dealt with this before? Thanks.

Its the targetAddress in AD. Normally this should be the mail address. Is your RUS working properly? Are there any other, seemingly unrelated issues?

I'll check out the taget address and make sure the RUS is configured properly and go from there. Thanks.

Where do I find the Target Address setting?

I started to troubleshoot this problem today. Looks like there might be an issue where the sender is choosing recipients from both her Outlook Contacts AND the Exchange Global Address List. So tomorrow I'm going back there to dive deeper into this problem. This could just be user issue with how she's selecting recipients...... maybe...

I've also seen this issue during a migration from 5.5 to E2K3 and the bridgeheads were still 5.5. Once I created a 2K3 frontend, and eliminated the BH on 5.5 it disappeared. maybe?

Is the recipient on the same system? Almost sounds like the EX address being on the messages, which is another issue I've had related to migrations before.
