  • Find and Replace within AD?

    Hi all,
    Just a quick query really. I mass untick a box in the "E-mail address" tab named "Automatically update e-mail address based on the recipants policy" for a lot of users. Is there anyway of doing this in one sweep? A query maybe?

    ADModify.net can do this. Link in the Misc forum Sticky

    Can I ask why you want to do this?
    cheers

      All our addresses have multiple SMTP addresses - it seems to be causing an issue so we want to remove them all bar one. ADmodify seems like a great little tool thanks for the link.

      I can remove the SMTP one at a time, but is there any way to ask it to do multiple removals? ive tried inputting to values seperated but a ; but ADmodify didnt like this, I.e, smtp*@domain.com; smtp*@domain2.com.

      Altenativley, is there a way of removing all SMTP bar one that has a certain domain name?

        Each account can have as many email addresses as you want and it shouldn't cause an issue. Would you mind explaining the problem as there may be a better way of dealing with this.
        The addresses get populated by the recipient update service which is quite configurable. Removing its ability to change accounts isn't a great way of dealing with it in my opinion.

        The util says you can remove email addresses just by using "*@domain.com" so maybe you can just do them one by one? I still would try and find out what the other issue is first though.
