For a visual way to do this, try Hyena (www.systemtools.com).  It will let you do this interactively by just running a query, and then you can sort on the ProxyAddresses column.

Sorry, just replace objectcategory=user to objectclass=user.  If you have a huge AD environment, we can optimize it with objectcategory some, but its probably not worth it.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Must be user
Does not contain
