We are moving our email management to a 3rd party system.

I have just setup AD sync so our users have access to it.

When the 3rd party system did its first sync it found all our users fine but it also found over 2000 'random' email address in this format:
INFO|Found new email address - 65041@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 8dee8@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 28069b@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 232a55@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 2dd7a3@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 26b22e@domainname.co.uk
INFO|Found new email address - 3190ef@domainname.co.uk

I have no idea what these are so did and LDAP query:
proxyAddresses=smtp:3190ef@domainname.co.uk
Which gives me the atttached result.
we only have 20 odd Public folders not 2000!

Can anyone tell me:
What these addresses are
Can I safely get rid of them?

Thanks
Mark
