Unable to create new mailbox name due to the name is in use by old Public Folder ?

Hi,

I am unable to create the new mailbox because it is being used by the existing mail enabled Public Folder in Exchange Server 2007, see the error below:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error

The following error(s) occurred while saving changes:

set-mailbox
Failed
Error:
The proxy address "SMTP:disputes@domain.com" is already being used by "domain.com/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/02 01 Jan to Aug". Please choose another proxy address.

--------------------------------------------------------
OK

can you please assist me in tracking down and rename the PF ?

Thanks

Go to ADUC and go to advance to find the PF
The PF will be listed in the MESO folder so you can find it there in ADUC.
