I have a very interesting exchange problem. Someone created a user in ADUC with an exchange account called reunions. Something went wrong and the email did not work, so I assume this person attempted to delete the account. Now I am trying to establish an account called reunions. I can create the AD user just fine, but when it assigns the email address, it puts in reunions2@. This is baffling to me as I cannot find any evidence to the original reunions mailbox in Exchange System Manager. If I go into the user object in ADUC, and try to change the email address from reunions2 to reunions, I get an error telling me that this address already exists in this organization.
I have tried deleting the user and waiting some time and then recreating, but it always puts in reunions2. Nothing I have done so far has helped. Any help from here would be very appreciated.
