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.)

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
