Use the Get-AddressRewriteEntry cmdlet to view an existing address rewrite entry that rewrites sender and recipient e-mail addresses in e-mail messages that are sent to and from an e-mail organization.


get-addressrewriteentry [-Identity <AddressRewriteEntryIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]


Parameter Required Type Description




To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter on the command. The DomainController parameter is not supported on computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed. The Edge Transport server role writes only to the local ADAM instance.




This parameter specifies the address rewrite entry to be retrieved. The Identity parameter will accept a GUID, or the unique address rewrite name. You can omit the Identity parameter label.

Detailed Description

In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, address rewriting lets you modify the addresses of senders and recipients on messages that enter and leave an Exchange 2007 organization. You configure Address Rewriting agents on the Receive connector and Send connector on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed.

To run the Get-AddressRewriteEntry cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.
