Multiple Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) custom recipients with the same SMTP address appear in the Exchange Server directory after you create a one-way Connection Agreement from Microsoft Windows 2000 to Exchange Server 5.5 with the Active Directory Connector (ADC).


The Windows 2000 account has an SMTP address specified on the General tab of the Account Properties that is the same as an SMTP type custom recipient that exists in the Exchange Server directory.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.


This case only occurs when there is a duplicate target address. The ADC should remove the duplicate from the proxy address of the replicated object or suppress replication of the object.

If an Exchange 2000 mailbox is assigned to the Windows 2000 account and the SMTP address matches the SMTP address of the custom recipient in Exchange Server 5.5, a new mailbox is created in the Exchange Server 5.5 directory with the same SMTP address as the custom recipient.
