Hi there,

My setup is as follows:

Active Directory on Server 2008 R2
Naming convention for users is firstnamesurname

When creating a mailbox the default mail address is firstnamesurname@domain.com. This is fine except we prefer to have firstname.surname@domain.com and also have another valid address for each user of firstname<_at_>domain.com. So, I go into their user and go to the "Email Addresses" tab (as described here: http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configurati on/accounts/creating-aliases-in-kerio-connect-1123.html) and add them, then change the "kerio-mail-Preferred-Address" AD atttribute via ADSIedit to make the preferred address the one with the . in between the names.

This all works fine but leads to 3 separate people with the same name being created in the global address book, one for each of the addresses. So, my question is, despite following the KB article, is this the wrong way to do things? Can I stop it creating multiple entries or consolidate them somehow?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

I believe that if you use the 'Alises' Tab under accounts you should get what you want? It is a more cumbersome I/F though Smile

That was what I was thinking but the way I've done it is in the Knowledgebase as written by Kerio themselves so I feel it should work. If there's no other answer then I will end up doing aliases.

Cheers!

I agree. The manual is not very clear on this topic
