    Good Morning,

    I'm running SBS 2003 Standard SP1.

    I used to have a distribution group in ADUC that everyone was a member of
    for a particular email address ()

    I wanted to remove everyone except 1 user for the group so I did this under
    members. After I had done this everyone kept receiving the emails regardless.

    So I deleted the whole Distro group but everyone is still getting these
    emails, no-one has the email address listed under the respective user
    properties and the distro / security group has been removed.

    Where would this be coming from?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting here.

    From your post, I would like to confirm this issue is: You delete a couple
    of members in a group, but when you send mail to this mail-enabled
    Distribution Group, these users still receive email. Then you delete the
    group, but the issue persists. If I have misunderstood your concern, please
    feel free to let me know.

    Based on my experience, after you remove a user from one group, you need
    update "Recipient Update Service"

    The Recipient Update Service (RUS) creates and maintains Exchange specific
    attribute values in Active Directory. If you create and remove a mailbox
    for a user, the Recipient Update Service is responsible for the automatic
    generation of their Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) address and any
    other proxy addresses that you have defined for your recipients. However,
    there will still be a latency period before the Recipient Update Service
    produces the new e-mail account, even if the service has been set to run
    continuously.

    To make the changes apply immediately, you can manually update the RUS. To
    run an update, use the following steps:

    1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then
    click System Manager.

    2. Expand the Recipients object, and then click the Recipient Update
    Services container.

    3. Right-click the Recipient Update Service instance that you want to
    configure, and then click either Update Now. There are two objects in this
    container
    "Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration)" "Recipient Update
    Service <domain>", where <domain> is the name of your domain.

    After that you need waiting some time for this operation.

    For more information about RUS, refer to the following article:
    253828 How the Recipient Update Service Populates Address Lists
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=253828


    If this issue still occurs, please run Clean-up Agent on your Exchange
    Server:

    1. In Exchange System Manager, expand First Storage Group-> Mailbox Store.

    2. Right click "Mailboxes", and click "Run Cleanup Agent".

    If anything is unclear, or if you need further assistance on this issue,
    please let me know. I am happy to help you.

    Have a nice day!

    Best Regards,

    Chace Zhang (MSFT)

    Hello and thanks for replying.

    I ahve done both those procedures to try and fix the problem but neither
    have worked. However I think neither function worked because I didn't do it
    properly.

    When I updated RUS nothing seemed to happen (i.e. no dialog box etc) just
    that the cursor turns to an hourglass. The same when I run the mailbox
    cleanup wizard.

    Methinks something is wrong!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting back!

    Does this issue also occur when you using OWA?

    Currently, please perform the following steps to narrow down this issue

    Step 1: Use OWA to check whether the email address exists
    ==============================================
    1. Please use OWA to access one user's mailbox and create a new message.
    2. In the To field, type and click Ctrl+K to resolve the
    name.
    3. If the email address exists, the user or group name will be resolved.
    Then you may find it in ADUC.

    Step 2: Search for the existing email address
    ========================================
    If the name cannot be resolved, please try the following step to search for
    it.

    1. Start the Exchange System Manager.
    2. Click to expand the Recipients container.
    3. Right-click All Address Lists, point to New, and then click Address
    List.
    4. Click the Filter Rules button and verify that it is set to Exchange
    Recipients (the default setting).
    5. Click the Advanced tab, click Field, and then click User.
    6. Click E-mail Address.
    7. In the Condition box, click Starts with, and then in the empty box to
    the right, type the "[email protected]" (without the quotation mark) in the empty box
    to the right.
    8. Check the lower window for matches.
    If you find objects that have the same e-mail address as the one you are
    trying to add, either change the e-mail address for this object or delete
    the address if it is longer needed.

    Repeat the same process for public folders, contacts and groups, but use
    the following modifications:
    1. In step 5, change the setting to Public Folder, then Contact, and then
    Group.
    2. In step 6, click E-mail Address or Alias if the E-mail Address option is
    not available.

    Please refer to the following article for more information.

    280765 XADM: Error Message: This E-mail Address Already Exists in This
    Organization
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=280765

    Step 3: Search in ADUC
    ======================
    We can also perform the search through Active Directory Users and Computers.

    1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers Microsoft Management Console
    (MMC).
    2. Right-click the root-level domain, and then click Find.
    3. In the Find box, click Advanced tab, click Group in the Field box, and
    then click Proxy Addresses.
    4. Enter a condition and a value to search for, for example, "starts with"
    (without the quotation marks) and "SMTP:[email protected]" (without the quotation
    marks). And then click Find Now.

    If you find the object, please delete it and then check whether the issue
    occurs. Otherwise, please use the following step to remove the unwanted
    address.

    Step 4: Remove the unwanted email address
    ======================================
    In case the steps above do not help resolve this issue, I suggest that we
    use the LDIFDE utility included in the system to remove the unwanted Proxy
    Address. The detailed steps are documented in the following Microsoft KB
    articles:

    Removing Duplicate and Unwanted Proxy Addresses in Exchange
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=318774

    Using LDIFDE to Import and Export Directory Objects to Active Directory
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=237677

    Hope this helps. If you have further concerns, please feel free to get in
    touch!


    Have a nice day!

    Chace Zhang (MSFT)
