The best way to add new seconday SMTP addresses is to use Exchange Recipient Policies.  However, sometimes you just want to assign a new SMTP address to everyone within a particular OU.  Because Exchange Recipient Policies are (in Exchange 2000 and 2003 at least) based on LDAP queries, you cant select users within an OU as part of an LDAP query.  ADModify allows you do this, which provides a nice workaround to the Recipient Policies limitation.
