corrupted contact list

Hi all,

I have a strange issue, we have had a contact list for one of our offices for a number of years in AD with no issue.  Recently the email addresses changed on the list from joe.bloggs@company.com to joe.bloggs@xxx.company.com.  The xxx has been added in by AD as an incorrect entry.

Any ideas how this would have happened and is thier an easy way to update as a group?

I have requested a new list from the other office which may be easier to import and delete the current.

Many thanks

It looks like someone added an extra e-mail address to the properties of the list in AD.  This should be able to be removed from the list through it's property sheet.
