Sharepoint and Active Directory

We setup Sharepoint 2010 a few years ago and the installer brought Active Directory users into the setup as Sharepoint users. At that point, it brought over numerous fields - including email addresses. Since then, when we add users in Sharepoint using the People Picker, it does not bring over any info other than username. Items like Email address are left out. I would either like to be able to get Sharepoint to synchronize with the Active Directory or be able to edit users in Sharepoint so that i can utilize email notifications. Any ideas?

Hi,
which Sharepoint edition do you use? Wuth Sharepoint server you will have to configure and run the User Profile Synchronization Service.

The probably is not completelly solved, but it is related to the User Profile Sync Service. A rule is stopping the issue from running. even though i have disabled the rule, i have to delete the user and bring them back in.
