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..

Error:
The proxy address "smtp.production@domain.com" is already being used by "domain.local/Microsoft Exchange system Objects/production". Please chose another proxy adress

so "domain.local/Microsoft Exchange system Objects/production" using that address.
Can't you rename/delete this email address/account?

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

Thank you guys. I found out that it was a public folder and I never think to look under public folders.
It's working fine now.
Thank you both for your help
