When you create two identical user entries within different Recipients containers in Exchange Server 5.5, the users are assigned e-mail proxy addresses that are numbered sequentially starting with 2. For example:
Jane Doe is given an SMTP address of email@example.com
The second Jane Doe is then given an SMTP address of firstname.lastname@example.org
When you use the Microsoft Active Directory Connector (ADC) to synchronize the Exchange Server 5.5 directory with Microsoft Windows 2000 Active Directory, these entries have display names within Windows 2000 that are numbered sequentially starting with 1. For example:
The first Jane Doe has a display name of Jane Doe
The second Jane Doe has a display name of Jane Doe-1
This causes an inconsistency with the display names of users and their actual proxy e-mail addresses.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 and Microsoft Active Directory Connector.
