Exchange Aliases missing after mailbox move

Two mailstores on same server in two different storage groups

After moving two of the mailboxes in my environment the email aliases assigned to the accounts in AD no longer show up.  YET they work.  So if you look under my account, I don't see domainadmin@domain.com for example.  But if I send a mail to that address I get it.   Makes managing aliases VERY difficult seeing they exist but aren't listed...

Any thoughts?

I am curious to see how they do not exist. I would check attributes right inside ADSIEDIT for each of those users - and if its there, i wont bother AD much since i would be relieved to see those users working good.

Do you have specific attributes to look for?

homeMDB (this looks like the one i moved the mailbox to:
CN=Mailbox Store II (MX01),CN=Second Storage Group,CN=InformationStore,CN=MX01,CN=Servers,CN=First Administrative Group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=CompanyName,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=corp1,DC=companyname,DC=com

homeMTA (looks like the Exchange server both mailstores reside on)
CN=Microsoft MTA,CN=MX01,CN=Servers,CN=First Administrative Group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=CompanyName,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=corp1,DC=companyname,DC=com

/o=CompanyName/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=myusername

and here's an example

I can send an email to "bugreport@mydomain.com" and receive it.  But if I  am looking  at ADUC on the Exchange server I don't see that alias under my account.  How is this possible?  I can't look at Exchange attributes on the DC because Exchange management tools isn't installed on it and therefore Exchange tabs aren't available.  Would it help if I installed them on there so the tabs show up?

Why not look for the same information on the Exchange box - if it is simply about exchange extentions - you would see that on the exchange box - and if you see it there - installing mgmt tools on a DC would be a verdict for this case.

I would be primarily be concerned about couple of attributes.

1) mailNickName
2) mail
3) proxyAddresses
4) displayName

Check for all four of them being populated correctly please.

I am a complete moron.  Basically I had made a distribution group for this address and NOT set up an alias.  So the aliases did all migrate.  The group was deep in an OU structure but I found it.  I apologize for the mistake.

the email address at hand was not an alias attached to the user account but rather the user account was a member of a distribution group with that name
