SBS 2008 Active Directory Attribute Editor

Hello,

We have an instance where we need to migrate a few SBS 2003 users to SBS 2008.  As part of the process, I created a "proxy Address" in the SBS 2008 server for the Legacy DN of the old server, so that they could reply to old emails, etc.

The next day this stopped working, so I checked and my addition to the ProxyAddress field is gone.  

Any idea what erased it, and how to prevent it from happening again?

Thanks,
Mike

I'm not quite clear on what you are trying to accomplish here.   Was SBS 2008 installed in migration mode into the SBS 2003 domain?   All users would be migrated as part of the DC replication.

From your description I guess the email addresses are being overwritten by the email address policy in Exchange 2007.
