  • Change email address

    Hi all,

    I recently took over an Exchange Server 2003 box. Been a loooooong time since I worked on 2003, and I'm by no means a true guru anyway...

    Apparently, we have an email address in place named "[email protected]". The powers-that-be simply want to change it to [email protected].

    Is this possible? If so, how? What are the ramifications and is there another, better method?

    Thanks!

    Chris

    Re: Change email address

    Is mailbox2011 a user's email address, or does it go to a public folder? If the former, add [email protected] as an additional SMTP address for that user, set it as primary, and you're all set to go. I'm no expert on Exchange, so take it with a grain of salt

      Absolutely correct
      Remember to leave the previous address as the rest of the world will still be aware of it nd may still send to it -- changing the address will immediately drop anything to the old one

        I do believe that worked like a champ. Added the new SMTP, set as primary, renamed account, test email sent. When those who wanted it change come in, I will check the test because I don't know the PW (and don't wanna change it) and don't know how they're retrieving the emails (OWA, Outlook?).

        Will report back! Thanks!
