Delete exchange 2007 email addresses

Hi all!

I want to remove an specified email address from all users in my enterprise. Can you help me how to do this?

I had an authoritative domain something.mydomain.com and everybody has an email address
alias@something.mydomain.com . This domain no longer exists, i deleted it from accepted domains, but every one has an email addrss alias@something.mydomain.com wich I want to delete.

Best regards,
Csaba

Let me respond to my own posting. Yes ADModify works with Exchange 2007!
Start ADModify. I used version 2.1:
http://www.codeplex.com/admodify/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=6065
Select Modify Attribute. Pick domain and DC. Click on arrow. In ADUC like interface, click on desried OU. Select all the users after they show-up in the right pan. Click next. Go to E-Mail Addresses tab; check and configure the box labeled 'Remove E-mail Address'.... like "smtp:*@something.mydomain.com".

From the hub transport, you also need to modify the email address policy.

After you change the email policy - you can right click on the policy and select apply to re-apply the policy.

I don't think email address policy will remove the addresses - in much the same way that recipient policy wouldn't in Exchange 2003.

Admodify.net should be able to remove the addresses for you though.

Are you sure ADmodify would work? With Exchange 2007, email addresses are not part of User Properties in AD, even with Windows 2003.
