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.

Thanks
Mark

Probbaly an application was sending something to them using an alias like info@company.com 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.

Check security groups as well. Security groups can be mail enabled to act as distribuition groups

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