I have an Exchange 2010 Server. Which is working fine except, when someone in the office tries to reply to an email that is from the same domain, we get this strange looking reply address, which bounces back, here is an example of the reply address we get,

 Fred Bolton[IMCEAEX-_O=wmhsac_OU=EXCHANGE+20ADMINISTRATIVE+20GROUP+20+28FYDIBOHF23SPDLT+29_CN=RECIPIENTS_CN=JSHEPHERD@wmhsac.net.au]

If we send to anyone not in our domain or reply to anyone we have no probs.

have you exported to PST and then re-imported in to a different Exchange Organisation?

If so then this is due to a missing X500 address in the new Exchange Organisation.

You have 2 options, delete the entry from the NK2 file for each user or add the X500 addresses related to the previous exchange organisation, this needs to be exact so if you don't know it go for the first option.

Thanks Dematzer, we have 4 servers to upgrade from 2007 to 2010 and we have done 2, and both of them are doing the same thing, both these servers only have a handful of users so I think the x500 address creation sounds good. However I know with exchange 2003 there is an option to create an x500 address, but I thought exchange 2007 and 2010 no longer had the option to create an x500 address

as I said, did you migrate from one Exchange organisation to another by exporting the mail to PST and then re-importing it?

if so then this is the reason why.

If you didn't do this then we need to look at another option.

OK, in that case it is the X500 issue :)

Do you know the exact organisation details of the Exchange Organisation they were exported from?

If you do then follow this: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2009/05/21/cannot-reply-to-old-emails-or-modify-old-calendar-items-after-pst-mail-migration.aspx

Just a curveball possibly, one of the Servers domain names is different to its new Server domain name, will this affect things.

eg old domain pcls new domain nmae yic

They got bought out by someone else but are retaining there original email addresses, and are being moved onto companyBs server.

shouldn't cause a problem, the X500 address is only being added so that old emails etc can be replied to.  It won't matter what it is as long as it's correct for the reply addresses :)

Thanks Dematzer

Had to troubleshoot a couple of addresses with different issues, but the problem I had mentioneed here, was resolved exactly the way you said to do it. I didnt do the bulk thing and did them individually, but there was only about 10 email addresses to do.

Thanks once again, you saved me heaps of time, as googling stuff like this takes such a long time to filter through the garb, whereas you pinpointed the problem straight away and gave a precise set of answers.

Really appreciate it
