Hi, I import more than 2000 contacts into my AD.
But I only can establish one email address each time.
So is there any method to establish all the mail addresses at a time.
I am using exchange 2003 and server 2003~ thank you.

or have i misread the question?

look into ldifde - it will allow you to set as many proxyaddresses as you want when importing.

you have to use ldifde - you can't use csvde as that is an export-only utility
