Try this:

Click Start -> Run -> Cmd.exe -> OK
DSQuery * -Filter "(mail=*@domain.com)" -Attr mail -L -Limit 0

** To save results in file:
DSQuery * -Filter "(mail=*@domain.com)" -Attr mail -L -Limit 0 >emails.txt

Hope this helps!


Up at the top of your find are you sure that you are in the correct folder in AD....do you have Entire Directory selected?
