Exchange 2007 access denied to address list service

I have installed Exchange 2007 successfully on a Windows 2003 server box, this box is not the domain controller, but is connected to it and logged onto the domain.  when I try to add a new mailbox, it displays all the recipeints who I would like to add through AD, but when I try to add the recipients I get the following error:
Access to the address list service on all Exchange 2007 servers has been denied.
Exchange Management Shell command attempted:

I was having the same problem. This is what fixed it for me:
1) Open the "Exchange Servers" group from the "Microsoft Exchange Security Groups" container in your Active Directory Users and Computers utility.
2) Simply remove and re-add the affected server.

My guess is that the GUID somehow got corrupted in AD, and needs to be re-freshed.
I had a similar error when migrating users - in my case it was to do with the number of email addresses a user had - some had more than 500!
I had the same issue. Resolved by:
  • Removing, then re-adding the Exchange server from the "Exchange Servers" security group in AD.
  • Restarting the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service
