Hi
I have an email that drive me crazy.
I try to create an user "production" with an email production@ and Exchange automatically create production2@.
That's because the email exist but I can't see it anywhere. I open every user account and look for under email tab and no trace of that production email.
I did a search on AD by email and again no production email.
What is strange is that I send an email to and a user received it. I know the user account who receive that email but that production email is not on his account.
I also look every distribution list and nothing. Actually there is no distribution list.
Were else can I look for.

Hi,

go to any user mailbox properties--> email address tab--> add production@domain.com --> now it should show you the "account" which already using production@domain.com

then you can remove it manually..

You need to enable AdvanceFeatures in ADUC so you can see the MESO container and the Production Account under it

It's working fine now.
