X.400 address syntax in default email policy

In the default email policy, I deleted the X.400 address. Now I'm discovering that X.400 is required for our legacy 2003 Exchange server or the Information Store service will not start (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329599/en-us) and I need to start it up one last time to replicate before removing it from our setup.

I can't find any documentation on how the syntax is supposed to be built for an X.400 proxy address within Active Directory. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Try this:

C=US;A= ;P=ORGNAME;O=ORGNAME;S=LastName;G=FirstName;

For the "ORGNAME", if your company is orgname.com, you only need "ORGNAME"...not the ".com"

So, for John Doe at contoso.com, it would look like this:

C=US;A= ;P=CONTOSO;O=CONTOSO;S=Doe;G=John

Hope that helps.

Close enough. I found the exact string buried in one of the user attributes using adsiedit. For the address policy, it wouldn't accept the S or G attributes on the end because it appends them itself.
