In Windows Active Directory (in connection with Exchange 2010), I am unsure about the semantic difference between
proxyAddresses: attributes. As far as I can tell,
mail: is one-valued whereas
proxyAddresses: is multivalued and (apart from the possibility to include non-SMTP addresses) allows one value starting with
SMTP as main address and several values starting with
smtp as secondary addresses.
I think I recall that in former versions of Windows and/or Exchange the main
proxyAddresses was always kept in sync with the
mail: AAA@example.com proxyAddresses: SMTP:BBB@example.com proxyAddresses: smtp:CCC@example.com
So any mail that user sends will use
<BBB@example.com> as sender address; incoming mail addressed to either
<CCC@example.com> will end up at that users mailbox; but where does
<AAA@example.com> come into play?
So the questions I have are
- Is there any specific purpose where the
- Does it ever make sense to have different
proxyAddresses:SMTPentries as above?
- If the answer to the preceding question is "no": What am I doing wrong that causes
proxyAddresses:SMTPto be no longer kept in sync?
