Relationship between Email: and Email Addresses fields in Active Directory

Hi

In AD, I notice there are two fields for email addresses.

The first is in the General tab, and named E-mail:

The second is in the E-mail Addresses tab, where you can add SMTP addresses.

I was wondering what the relationship between the two fields was? And how does RUS fit in?

Cheers

The E-mail field in the General tab always show the user Primary Email Address, which is the one in BOLD in the Email Address tab. It doesn't matter how many additional smtp addresses you added the field always display the primary one.

Recipient Update Service doesn't fit in AD. It only fits in ESM.

Recipient policy creates the email address (thats where you setup the default email domain for your users). RUS is only updating the GAL.

Ah, sorry...what I meant to say was, does Recipient Policy create the mail address in the E-mail Addresses tab, or in the General > Email: section?

I sometimes notice that the two are different?

Recipient Policy creates email address in the Email Address tab. The box in General>Email only shows the PRIMARY email address for that users.
