2007 exchange, need to set different smtp address to multiple users

Posted on 2010-09-07
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
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, is set to windows sbs external domain and true, which is the default for all users and are authoritative and 'false' for default


If I want a block of users to have 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 += ""
set-mailbox $user -emailaddresses $user.emailaddresses

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, which worked, but I cannot get it to set as reply....which perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree
