recover mail enabled Public folder

We are using Exchange 2003 and have recovered some deleted public folders using the PFDAVAdmin tool, but one of the folders was a mail enabled folder and we can't associate the original address to that  folder as it already exists in exchange.  Question is how to associate the original e-mail address to the public folder

You have to remove it from where it is. You can't have two addresses the same in Exchange or it is ambiguous. Then the messages bounces because it doesn't know where to send it too.

Go to Active Directory Users & Computers (DSA). Bring up the Find box. Under Advanced, choose Field, then User and scroll down and choose Proxy Addresses. Starts with in the Condition, and put your email address like "SMTP:theemail@addressyou.want" in the value field.

I don't think the case of the smtp matters, but try both cases if it doesn't find anything. Uppercase is the default, and lowercase just one of the addresses.

try this command (CMD line) at a machine with admin tools on it (or a server).

dsquery * -filter (&(objectclass=*)(|(proxyaddresses=smtp:theemail@addressyou.want)(mail=theemail@addressyou.want)))
