Possibly might have some orphaned property in AD that Exchange is
querying during the mailbox creation. I would query your AD to see if
there are any references of any store information in AD. 
Export all information for your exchange config partition in AD, then
search through the text file for the name of the store that shows up
when you create a mailbox.
ldifde -f c:\exchange.txt -d "CN=Microsoft
Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=fabrikom,DC=com" -p subtree

Subject: [ExchangeList] Weird AD/Exchange issue

One of my clients has a weird issue:


This is an Exchange Server 2003 server, and whenever we go to add a new
user through AD Users and Computers, an old Exchange 5.5 server and
Private Information Store shows up.  I see nothing in Exchange System
Manager referencing the new server, and if you try to use the Move
Mailbox wizard, it doesn't show up their either.  It ONLY shows up on
the Exchange dialog box to create an Exchange mailbox.  There are no
traces of Exchange 5.5 I can find anywhere (no SRS, no ADC, the server
has been off for over two years, etc., etc.)


Where is this coming from,  and how can I get rid of it?  Any ideas?
