Hi Everyone,

I have a user that just got married....changing her last name. The user currently has an company email address, I need to setup a new email address or alias so she can receive mail from both email accounts. me.single@domain.com and me.married@domain.com. The user wants to have both email accounts until all her contacts have been notified of the change.

How can I do this?...with an alias? Any help would be appreciated, I need to get this done ASAP.

All you need to is to add another email address to the users account - you can have as many as you want. Decide which of the email addresses will be the PRIMARY address (will be used in all replies)

KCTS is correct.

- Open properties to the Account in ADUC (Exchange or Exchange Tools needs to be installed on that machine).
- Select the E-mail Address Tab
- Cleck New, select SMTP and fill in the E-mail address. (If the new address will be the permanent address I recommend setting it as the primary so that replies will have that address.)

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Can this be caused from a permission issue?

Try doing it from the exchange server directly. It has ADUC installed by default. That will rule out problems with the tools.

Rikketyrik,

I tried from the Exchange server (logged in through RDC) with admin rights using ADUC... Error message is the same:-(

Interesting....

Are you using delegation? There may be some a permissions issue.

Rule out any other issues such as DNS and/or basic AD issues. Check over the event logs etc.

I found a blog entry that may or may not help. http://mostlyexchange.blogspot.com/2005/09/error-in-active-directory-users-and.html

Here is a KB that "may" help.... http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;272147

Thank You, I believe that just adding the SMTP address to the existing accouont should have accomlished the objective of having a second email account for the same user.

I believe that my account has "view only" permission as stated in the article in the link you provided.

Thanks Again
