Exchange Mailbox Issue
Posted on 2012-09-11
I've just created a new mailbox for "firstname.lastname@example.org" on our Exchange server and also gave it an alias of "email@example.com". However I had realized I had made an error and needed to make the above alias a full mailbox instead. So I removed the alias from the firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox and created the new mailbox for "email@example.com".
Now whenever I go to look up the new "Background@mydomain.org" email address it is not listed in the exchange global address list. Also, when I go to just type in the email address in the To field in Outlook and press tab it resolves to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. I then went to the properties of "email@example.com" mailbox in Outlook and see that the old alias for background is still listed.
The Background@mydomain.org email address is also shared between firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and they both have "Send As" and "Full Mailbox Access Permissions".
I am wondering if I need to remove the Send As and Full Mailbox Control access for firstname.lastname@example.org from the "Background@mydomain.org" email account and then re-add it.
Does anyone know how to correct this issue?
