Email Accounts & Distribution Groups

I have an SBS 2003 box for a client who has now moved to SBS 2008. They say they used to get all the info@ emails sent to a number of email addresses. However, when I look through the old server, no accounts or distribution exist with info@ address.

I have no idea how they were getting these emails. Any ideas?

Emmm, weird. So there is not 'info@' addresses in AD? Ask the client for proof.

Dont trust 'em - I always say!! I only beleive ehat I see!

Seriously though - the groups may not be set up with info" in the name. Try a custom search in AD.

Probbaly an application was sending something to them using an alias like or something. if 2k3 exchange was accepting anonymous access ; then it was possible to send emails using any alias without a need to create account on exchange.

Also check if there was a mail enabled public folder.

Before you go back to user. Try to find the email address from your end first.
