Exchange Specific LDAP attributes
An easy, but important attribute. A simple SMTP address is all that is required
Normally this is the same value as the sAMAccountName, but could be different if you wished. Needed for mail enabled contacts.
Another straightforward field, just the
Exchange needs to know which server to deliver the mail.
As the name 'proxy' suggests, it is possible for one recipient to have more than one email address. Note the plural spelling of proxyAddresses.
SMTP:@ email address. Note that SMTP is case sensitive. All capitals means the default address.
