Interesting.  What is your CA set to do?  Did you change the objects with a
script or with a recipient policy?  
I prefer to have my CA set to log at a minimum level all the time so I can
see what changes occur and in cases like this have something to look at for
changes.  I think if you look in the logs, you may find that the 5.5 server
rejected some of the changes.  In 5.5, it would likely not expect you to
change the default SMTP address that way, but rather that you would change
it via the 5.5 tools and let it replicate to the Active Directory.  By
default, the CA is set to treat Exchange as the authoritative directory.
If you changed this with a recipient policy, check out the readme doc that
talks about how the default recipient policy is 5.5 based and can't be
changed in 2000 while in mixed mode (something like that).
Interested to hear what you find after checking the logs as well.

Subject: [exchangelist] Change of Default SMTP Address not replicated with

Dear list. 

I changed some hundred mail enabled user objects in AD. There has been added
some new addresses and also the default SMTP address changed. After running
the ADC CA to replicate these changes to 5.5 environment, I noticed that all
modified objects lacks of a default SMTP address ;-( The added address
appear in the proxyaddresses but they all don't have a default SMTP address.

I am a bit confused: 

(1) Why did the Connection Agreement not change the Default SMTP address? 
(2) What happens, if a user don`t has a default SMTP address? 

I don't want to touch RUS and don't want to make a CSV import. Think the CA
should handle all this automaically. Any ideas?
