We have two Exchange Server 2010 organizations. At the moment we have to run Gal sync using Forefront identity manager between to the two organizations in order to keep contact information up to date.

We discovered last week that a few contacts where having their primary SMTP addresses overwritten by their secondary SMTP addresses. We haven't discovered the reason for this yet any ideas or fixes?

Do the same users exist in both organizations? Not just mailbox users but also mail users (AD accounts, mail-enabled with an SMTP address of the other organization).

Verify from Mail suffix that you configure on Management Agent, if it's primary, it won't override to secondary to secondary mail
