Use the SMTP Address and Custom Address dialog boxes to specify a new e-mail address and address type for the recipient. This dialog box appears when you click Add or Edit on the E-mail Addresses tab in a recipient's property page.

E-mail address

Use this box to type the new address.

Exchange validates Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) addresses for proper formatting. If your entry is inconsistent with SMTP format, an error message will be displayed when you click OK.
E-mail type
  • Use this box to type the e-mail address type. The e-mail address type cannot exceed 9 characters.

  • The e-mail address type is the identifying proxy information for the e-mail address. Exchange uses this information to determine how to process the e-mail address.

    In the SMTP Address dialog box, this box is automatically populated with SMTP and cannot be modified.
  • Examples of custom e-mail types include X400, GroupWise, and Lotus Notes.

  • This box is disabled when editing existing e-mail addresses.
