You can create or edit partial e-mail addresses for this site. Partial e-mail addresses contain information specific to a site. For example, you can define an X.400 address for a site that contains only X.400-specific information. The next time you create a mailbox, this part of the address is used to generate a full X.400 address for the mailbox.
Note You should always check these addresses after installation to be sure they are correct and consistent throughout your system.
The Microsoft Exchange Server automatically generates site addresses for MS Mail, SMTP, and X.400 address types. These addresses are generated based on the organization and site name you specified during installation and are used to create recipient addresses. Sometimes organization names and site names contain characters that are not valid in certain address types. Therefore, you may need to modify the site addresses.
Note The MS Mail site address cannot be changed using this procedure. You must use the Local Postoffice property page for the MS Mail Connector.
For more information about valid addresses and characters, see Appendix C, "Addressing Conventions."
You can disable automatic e-mail address generation for individual address types that you do not need. By specifying only those address types that you need, you can reduce network traffic and disk space usage when creating users. Disabling automatic generation for a particular address message type does not remove existing e-mail addresses.
When using directory import to create users, you can disable e-mail addresses at the site level so only those addresses that are enabled are created.
Note If your users send or receive mail to a particular system (for example Lotus cc:Mail) do not disable the automatic e-mail address generation for that address type unless you plan to create it manually.
You can remove unused automatic e-mail address generation types to reduce both network traffic when creating new addresses and required disk storage for recipient information. Removing automatic generation of an address type does not remove existing e-mail addresses until the addresses are regenerated.
