if you open dsa.msc on the exchange server, browse to the user, right-click and select properties. Then on e-mail addresses add a new one. It may take 20 odd minutes to replicate...

The sugested resolution was already implemented at the time as I noted.  The changes were not being propegated until a reboot was accomplished.

Good to hear it is sorted.

May I suggest that you make sure that you check your domain controllers to ensure that you have no replication issues or errors in the event log?
