ADMT/ mail migration utilities from Microsoft puts an X.500 address on
migrated mail-enabled objects for that reason.  That allows replies to occur
the without user intervention.  

The way you have it now, users would have to reply to the message with all
new recipient information to make it deliver properly.  Likely not an issue
30 days from now though, right?

Hello everyone,

I'm reposting this plea for suggestions...

        Installed a new Windows 2003 server w/ Exchange 2003 at a client
site.  They were running W2K w/Exch 2K.  I did not do an online migration.
I replaced the original drives in the server and did a clean installing
changing the to company.local for internal dns.

        Emails that were sent within the organization based on the Global
Address book prior to the new server will not deliver when users try to
reply to them now.  Error is "message undeliverable..."

        I went in and updated the email field on contacts that were based on
the former Global Address Book.

But I don't have a clue as how to easy the users pain of having to always
double check the email address prior to sending...

 Did I over look a tool that would have allowed me to export the Global
Address book and then import it into the new Global Address book?  Would
this have allowed the replies to emails prior to the new server?

Thanks for your input,
