This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the Exchange Management Shell to add an e-mail address for a user mailbox.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Recipient Configuration > Mailbox.

  2. In the result pane, select the mailbox for which you want to add an e-mail address.

  3. In the action pane, under the mailbox name, click Properties.

  4. In <User Mailbox > Properties, click the E-Mail Addresses tab.

  5. To create an e-mail address, under E-mail Addresses, click the arrow next to Add and select from the following address types:

    • SMTP Address   This is the default address type. Click this button and use the corresponding dialog box to add an SMTP address.

    • EUM Address   An Exchange Unified Messaging (EUM) address is used by Unified Messaging (UM) servers to locate UM-enabled users within a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization. EUM addresses contain the extension number and the UM dial plan for the UM-enabled user. Click this button and use the corresponding dialog box to add an EUM address.

    • Custom Address   Click this button and use the corresponding dialog box to add a custom address (for example, fax or X.400).

      noteNote:
      With the exception of X.400 addresses, Exchange doesn't validate custom addresses for proper formatting. You must make sure that the custom address you specify complies with the format requirements for that address type.
  6. Click Apply, and then click OK.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example shows how to add an additional address to the user john@contoso.com. For more information about adding and removing values from multivalued properties, see Modifying Multivalued Properties.

Set-Mailbox john@contoso.com -EmailAddresses @{add="john@northamerica.contoso.com"}
