System.Directory...Active Directory problems
I tried to create a new user for a new member of staff and up until now it
has been fine but now I create the account using active directories and users
but when I login to set this new users outlook it cannot find the name and it
looks like it has not created it at all but when creating this user it said
it would also create an exchange mailbox but it didn't.
See if this helps:

Are you using an LDAP directory for address lookup?
If not, then use the Tools-Email accounts-Directories-View or Change to
delete this option.

Hi, we are running Exchange 5.5 and want to offer an external LDAP
address book to our users in addition to the standard Exchange global
address book. Has anyone done this before? I'm looking for suggestions
on the best method to do this.
The best solution would be that users wouldn't have to do anything
(Exchange would do all the work).
Any suggestions are appreciated!
Anyone done this?

A client posted the following suggestion.
When a name change is made in active directory, it does not sync with
Requisition Management. So when we do a name change, we have to delete the
old name out of RM and manually create a new one and do the same thing in the
approval hierarchy. It would be nice if this synced with RM all the way down
so we only have to do it once.
