    Recently created a new user and when I look at the e-mail addresses for that
    user there are a LOT of e-mail addresses for that user. The default e-mail
    address is there but there are a bunch like *,
    *, etc. (there are at least 100 addresses similar to

    I first noticed this behavior after experiencing the problem described in
    MSKB 842293 (;en-us;842293)
    and following the directions contained therein. I "resolved" it by
    unchecking the "Automatically update e-mail addresses based on recepient
    policy" box and then deleting these weird e-mail addresses.

    The recepient policy is setup with our external domain as the default SMTP
    address. The other SMTP addresss is the local domain. There is also an X400
    address that I have not touched.

    My other SBS Premium box does not exhibit this behaviour (but it also never
    had the 842293 problem).

    Help! What's with these wacky e-mail addresses and where do they come from?

    Private support newsgroups for Microsoft Partners
    These newsgroups are only open to Microsoft Partners (like CompuMentor), and
    are staffed by real tech support personnel paid for by Microsoft. They're
    quite good at answering your questions, even proactively following up via
    email if they haven't heard for certain that your problem is solved. Usually
    I get a response within 24 hours, frequently less.

    These newsgroups are for break/fix issues. That is, something is broken and
    you need help fixing it.

    The newsgroups can be accessed through the Web (registration required) or
    via a newsgroup (NNTP) reader.

    A password is required for newsreader access, and can be obtained from the

    Hi John,

    Have you made any amendments to the Recipient Policy, in Exchange System
    Manager at all?

    I have experienced an issue before with Exchange 2000 that generated ton's
    of garbled email aliases after configuring a policy to create a custom email
    alias. If I remember correctly, some users were configured with the
    required information to generate the alias and Exchange objected by making
    some up.

    Kind regards,
