Subject: [exchangelist] Bug in Tool ADMODIFY / Changing SMTP Addresses in

Dear list, 

I may change the smtp addresses of 400 users ;-) Was very happy to found the
tool "admodify", since I don`t know how to handle "multi-valued-fields" with
vbs (the second proxy address is a multi-valued field) and this tool offers
a comfortable way to add and remove smtp addresses from AD users (and many
many more BTW).

Unfortunately I may have found a bug in the versions 1.4 and 1.5 (don`t know
if there are newer versions around, did already a internet research and
found nothing):

If I add a SMTP-address to one user and enable the option "Gernerate based
on current Primary SMTP address suffix" the added address contains only the

For example: adding "" to a user only adds "" as a
secondary proxy-address. There is nothing in front of the @ sign!!!

When setting above option and additionally enabling "Set As Primary SMTP
address", everything is working fine ;-) Because I do not want to add
primary addresses, this is a problem for me and as I think the program does
not work as expected here...

Anybody heard of this issue with ADMODIFY? Is there a new version which
fixes this problem? Any other possibilities or tools to accomplish this
