VIEW MEMBER FEEDACK TO THIS EXCHANGE SERVER TIP

Add two colums:

  1. proxyAddress
  2. mailNickname

Populate the proxyAddress column with SMTP address.
e.g., SMTP:SOKON@OMINIMAIL.COM

The mailNickname should be the user name or alias.

MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS EXCHANGE SERVER TIP

I just wanted to point out that the code should be proxyAddresses rather than proxyAddress (proxyAddress does not work).
—Christopher W.

******************************************

To mail enable an external contact within an Exchange Server 2003 environment, you also need to populate targetAddress with SMTP:name@domain.co.uk .
