Hey there, I am upgrading a domain to a 2008 SBS box, and doing everything by scratch and plan on importing the mailboxes manually also.

I have been able to set the accepted domains for the box, and there is one that has been set to default.

As I have created the users on the box, the default accepted domain as applied itself as the default e-mail address for the user.

If I go to EMC and Hub Transport->accepted domains, email1.com is set to windows sbs external domain and true, which is the default for all users

email2.com and email3.com are authoritative and 'false' for default

So...................

If I want a block of users to have email2.com as their default email address, where do I change that these days.....

Thank you

either in the exchange management console or the shell

$user = get-mailbox user
$user.emailaddresses += "smtp:alias@domain2.com"
set-mailbox $user -emailaddresses $user.emailaddresses

Is there a GUI version of that command?  I'll get used to the shell soon, but for now.....?  THx

If I am in EMC->Recipient configuration->Mailbox and click on the user and go to the e-mail addresses tab, I tried to ADD the username@email2.com, which worked, but I cannot get it to set as reply....which perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
