Tracking down e-mail addresses in Exchange

Tracking down e-mail addresses in Exchange

How many times has this happened to you? Somebody wants all the mail addressed to a generic address like info@theirdomain.com to be forwarded to a particular user account. So you go into the user account properties in Active Directory and try to add an SMTP address on the E-mail Addresses tab. But oops! You get an error message. It seems that someone or something else in the organization already has that address. Unfortunately, the message doesn’t even tell you if that someone or something is a user, a group, a public folder, or what, much less identify the offending party by name.

Fortunately, there are a few ways to figure out who’s got that address, and this article explains them.
