Managing Recipient Settings

Create an E-mail Address for a Mail-Enabled Recipient

You can create a new e-mail address for mail-enabled users, contacts, and groups. E-mail addresses identify recipients to the gateways and connectors that connect Exchange with other messaging systems. Creating a new e-mail address (of a different e-mail address type), for a mail-enabled recipient, enables the recipient to communicate with users on messaging systems indicated by the e-mail address type, such as Lotus cc:Mail and GroupWise.

To create an address for a mail-enabled recipient:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Double-click Users, or double-click the node that contains the recipient information you want to modify.
  3. In the details pane, double-click the mailbox-enabled recipient you are modifying.
  4. On the Exchange General tab, click Modify.
  5. In the E-mail Address dialog box, select Create new e-mail address, and then click OK.
  6. In the New E-mail Address dialog box, select the type of address you want to add, and then click OK.
  7. On the General tab, in E-mail address, type the e-mail address, and then click Apply.
