Some questions on X.500/LegacyExchangeDN's in an Exchange 2007 environment. Most of our mailboxes are manually created by Helpdesk, but we also have some that are automatically created (special mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org etc).
1. If I check a user's mailbox properties within EMC, I can see that they have X500 addresses. Are these the same as a LegacyExchangeDN (LED) address?
2. Our special mailboxes don't have X500 addresses, does this mean they don't have LED addresses? If so, how does Exchange route the internal mail?
3. Is the LED a property of the AD account or the Exchange mailbox? That is, if Domain\Smith has an LED of X, and I then connect that AD account to another mailbox that has an LED of Y, what LED does Smith user have?
