The following error(s) occurred while saving changes:

Error:
The Exchange server address list service failed to respond. This could be because of an address list or email address policy configuration error.

Get-addresslist

Run this to see if you have issues with the address lists on the server. Most systems have issues when transitioning from exchange 2003.

You can also update-addresslist and any accounts with issues will report an error. This could be down to invalid aliases or malformed purported searches.

This is the error that I get when running that command

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>update-addresslist

cmdlet Update-AddressList at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
Identity: User@domain.com
Update-AddressList : The operation could not be performed because object 'User@Domain.com'
could not be found on domain controller 'dc.Domain.local'.
At line:1 char:19

Sorry you need to specify the address list to update, get-addresslist | update-addresslist should work fine. This command will get all the address lists on the system and then attempt to update or rebuild them.
