I'm in the process of cleaning up our email boxes for a migration from on-site exchange 2003 to hosted exchange. One thing I'd like to do is get rid of email addresses for accounts that are only used to sign on to computers. is this possible? Do i just delete the domainname.org email address and leave the domainname.local address in the email addresses tab? Then delete that mailbox within system manager?

Thanks.

Should be able to just delete the mailbox.  After exchange does its purge.  That user should not have any e-mail addresses.

Perfect! I'll test it out on a domain account I know doesn't use the email address.

I would delete the mailbox using ADUC, exchange tasks...not directly in System Manager. That way AD wont be expecting a mailbox for that user.
