We are having an issue with an email adress that was created in 2004. The email adress at the time was on a server that no longer exist. The email adress is still active and working.

We found the user associated with the email adress in our Active Directory. We saw that his exchange attributes was on the old mail store.

So we didnt think all that much about it so we deleted the exchange attributes and then also the user and recreated it on our current exchange server. That went well, however the old email adress is still locked up and we cant use it. The email adress is also working?

Where can i possible find and remove this old email adress??

Thank you!

It can take a while for the email address to be released by Exchange, as it needs to replicate out.
You will need to be patient.
