My Exchange 2003 GAL contains Custom Recipients for mailboxes that no longer exist on an Exchange 5.5 server. The Exchange servers are in different domains. They at one time apparently were replicating but no longer do so. I can touch both Exchange servers. What is the best way to make the invalid custom recipients disappear ?

HI,
They can be removed using ADISIEDIT.MSC .Once removed they will disappear after the exchange completes online maintenance.
Thanks.

Have never used it before. Can you provide a link with good instructions on its use ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

As i continue to research this tool, will i find lots of decisions to make once i invoke the tool  on my Exchange 2003 server ?
I.e. for each Custom Recipient to delete, will there be more than one entry to be concerned with ?

Again, Thanks for your advice

YES you need "Exchange Full Admin" permissions on the exchange container.
