You need to delete the address from the default receipt policy, or if you just want to remove for the one account then untick the auto update email addresses based on receipt policy and it will not appear again.

You need to look at your Recipient Policy configuration in Exchange System Manager. That is the component that is adding that address back for you. Take a look at this article for information about Recipient Policies work: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319201.
seems like three different domain names!!! So, you had the exchange installed for which domain originally???

Did you create a recipient policy for .net domains??? If you don't want to use the .net domain name for all the user, you should delete the policy itself, else if only for the user, then you should un-check the check box in the image you attached above.

Go To

Expand Reciepients > Reciepient Policys and bring up the properties of the default policy.

Go To Email Addresses (Policy)

And delete the email you dont want.

not the .local one though you'll need that

thank you all
why they need local one?
As thats used by the server and AD.
the .local domain name won't create any problem, because internet users can't send mail on those...so, you can leave it
Actually since this is an SBS server, you need to go through the INeternet and E-mail setup wizard if you are changing this for the Domain.

Standard win 2003 procedures will NOT work on an SBS server for most things.

I hope this helps !
