I have an email address that is sales@mydomain.com.  There are no users or distribution groups within AD with that name.  How can I find it in Active Directory?

sales@mydomain.com is probably a mail alias for a user in your AD.

you can look at the message hearder from sales@mydomain.com if you got an email from sales@mydomain.com and it should have details as to the AD user.

You can also use the AD searh tool:

Right click on domain, select search, click advanced tab, click "Fields" button and select "E-Mail address" and set the search criteria.

Ok, if you believe that address is local to your organisation and it's mapped to some user/group/dl then first send a test email to sales@mydomain.com and check if the email makes through or bounces back


well if it bounces then it's clear... no such email address is mapped to any user/group/dl

if it makes it

then open active directory user and computer and right click you domain, select find
type the email address and hit find now
it will give you the user account to which it's mapped.
