  • Question

  • Hello Friends,

    I am stuck to get an answer to my doubt. If we have a co existance of Exchange 2003 and 2007, then why we need RUS services to stamp Mail enabled contact. I am mail enabling the contact from exchange 2003 server. Is really RUS needed for creating Mail enabled contact?

    And what is the difference between a simple Contact and a Mail enable Contact?

    It's necessary if you're creating those contacts from the ADUC and not
    Exchange 2007's EMC or EMS.

    You can use one to send e-mail to an object that appears in your GAL
    or OAB. You can't do that if it's not mail-enabled.

  • Hello Rich,

    Many thanks to you for your prompt help. I was making the Contacts through ADUC in Exchange 2003. So it's needed. One more help what I need is that, can you please guide me the steps to create a simple Contact. And since Contacts are made for pushing the mails then what is the concept for making a simple Contact (not mail enabled).

     

    Thanks !

    I guess it's the same as making a distribution group that's not
    mail-enabled. It still holds information that's accessible through
    LDAP. I often use a plain DL to hold lists of names that I want to
    group together for one purpose or another but don't have to ever sent
    the group an e-mail (and if I did [which I've never had to do] I could
    just get the mebership of the group and send e-mail to each member).
     
    Contacts aren't "made for pushing the mails" any more than AD User
    objects are. If you use them that way that's okay, but you may want to
    use them in other ways.
