Hi,

Your recipient update service is not running correctly -or- you are not
waiting long enough for it to run.  If you have multiple domain
controllers you may have to wait for the new account info to be
replicated to the server that is being used by the recipient update
service.

Thanks for your response.  I am running Ex2k3.  Here is why I am asking
the question.  Apologies for the long email.

Up until a couple of days ago, when I added a user, they would get a
X.400 address assigned to them by default and I never had to mess with
it and never even noticed it.

Now, when I add a new user in "Active Directory and Computers", their
"E-mail address" tab is completely empty and there is no default address
of any kind (strange!).  I am able to add SMTP addresses no problem, but
the system won't let me add X.400 addresses.  When I attempt to add a
X.400 address identical in format to any of the existing X.400
addresses, Exchange complains that the "ADMD is required".  But the ADMD
is null or blank for all my existing users.  The E-mail addresses are
blank even when I try to create a new user by making a copy from an
existing user.

This leads to 3 questions:

a) How come the ADMD is blank and is acceptable for existing users and
not acceptable for new users?  According to the "Help", a recipient
address does not need an DDMD, but how do I distinguish a "recipient
address" from anything else?

b) What should the ADMD field be, or all the other fields be, so I can
add X.400 addresses as a recipient address just like all my other
addresses? I have the following fields specified and all the others are
blank:

p=xyzmail  (Q: what exactly does this correspond to, or is it
arbitrary?) a= c=US g="first name" (without the double quotes of course)
s="surname" (without the double quotes) i="initials" (without the double
quotes" o=Exchange

c) What might have changed such that previously, users were getting a
default SMTP and X.400 address and now they are not?  What should I
check? Obviously something has changed.

TIA!
