This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to update a recipient's address and phone information in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. The changes you make to the recipient objects also update the Active Directory directory service and the address book.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

  • Account Operator role for the applicable Active Directory containers

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, click Recipient Configuration.

  3. In the result pane, select the recipient you want to modify.

  4. In the action pane, under the recipient's name, click Properties.

  5. In <Recipient> Properties, on the Address and Phone tab, update the address and phone information.

  6. Click Apply, and then click OK.

  • Run the following command to configure the telephone number and the address for the user

    Set-User -Identity -Phone "(425) 555-1000" -StreetAddress "4567 Main Street" -City "Buffalo" -StateOrProvince "NY" -PostalCode "98052"
