I'm running Exchange 2003 sp on MS Server 2003. I recently created a list of contacts and placed them in the OU=contacts. However, when I go to the GAL I now notice a regular email account shows the legacyExchangeDN as the display name just like the contact record. What did I do wrong?

Thanks much!

how are you seeing the legacyExchangeDN value in the GAL?
active directory will not give to mail-enabled objects the same legacyExchangeDN value

Yes. After creating contacts for some users, I now see their legacyExchangeDN such as /O=ABC/OU=ABC.COM/cn=Recipients/cn=Joe.Smith. This is only affecting users with recently-created contacts. By double-clicking the account name in the Address Book, the legacyExchangeDN field shows up in the Display name.
