All email addresses are distributed in Exchange to all mail-enabled objects as a result of the Recipient Policy. You can have one or more recipient policies, which can each assign more than one SMTP address to a user, public folder or other Exchange-enabled object in Active Directory. In your case, you must have a second SMTP address listed on one of your recipient policies - that is being applied automatically by Exchange, along with the default address, when you mail enable the public folder.

Ah, I see all of them now under the Default Policy, we have others listed and I didn't see anything listed within them so I was a bit lost.
Thank you both very much.
