We are trying to run the "setup /PrepareAD" command and it is failing with the following error:

Configuring Microsoft Exchange Server
                                                              FAILED
    Organization Preparation                                  100%
     The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
          Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Info "Set the default Accepted domain from the
 default recipient policy";
          $defaultEmailAddressPolicy = get-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity:"Default
 Policy";

          $defaultSmtpTemplate = $defaultEmailAddressPolicy.EnabledPrimarySMTPAd
dressTemplate;

          $index = $defaultSmtpTemplate.IndexOf("@");
          $eapAuthoritativeDomain = $defaultSmtpTemplate.Substring($index+1);

          $defaultDomain = get-accepteddomain | where {$_.DomainName -eq $eapAut
horitativeDomain };

          $defaultDomain | set-accepteddomain -MakeDefault:$true;
          Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Info "Default domain $defaultDomain";
        " was run: "Could not convert property DisabledEmailAddressTemplates to
type ProxyAddressTemplate. Error while converting string 'EFAX:' to result type
Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddressTemplate: E-mail address template "EFAX:" ha
s an empty prefix or an empty address template string. Property Name: DisabledEm
ailAddressTemplates".


The Exchange Server setup operation didn't complete. More details can be found
in ExchangeSetup.log located in the <SystemDrive>:\ExchangeSetupLogs folder.

Exchange Server setup encountered an error.


EFAX was NOT enabled in two recipient policies but we have removed them to no avail.  Does anyone know any other areas within ADSEdit to look?  Thanks.
