Help find and distroy lost email address.

I have an email address I need to get rid of.  Benefits@mydomain.com underlines when I type it into Outlook. The address is not cached.  When I send a message with Request Delivery Receipt, it comes right back delivered.  It does not show up in Exchange Management Console as a mailbox or a DL.  I can't find the account in AD Advanced search.  Any ideas where to look next?

Is it part of your .NK2 file, meaning, is it in your auto-complete list? If you start to type the address in the "To:" field and it shows up, use the down arrow to highlight it, then click delete.

Ok. Is it an outside contact within Active Directory? Is it in a local address book somewhere?

Joe has some shortcuts in there
adfind -sc exchaddresses: Benefits@mydomain.com
adfind -sc email:Benefits@mydomain.com

To find the mail address do the following:

Run Active Directory Users and Computers.

Right-click the domain object and choose Find from the context menu. This will bring up the Find Users, Contacts, and Groups window.

In the Find drop-down list, choose Custom Search.

Click the Advanced tab and in the Enter LDAP query: field, enter the following text:

proxyaddresses=smtp:Benefits@mydomain.com

Click the Find Now button.

you will get an object with that email address and you can either remove the exchange attribute or delete the object if you want.

I'll bet it is in Active Directory under some OU as a resource.
