This article describes how to set X500 proxy addresses for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 recipients and for Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server recipients.
To ensure the delivery of e-mail messages to a recipient that may not typically receive these messages, (for example, Exchange Server 5.5 distinguished names [also known as DNs] or migrated contact distinguished names), you can add an X500 proxy address to the recipient.

/o=ExampleAB/ou=Organizationalunit1/cn=Recipients/cn=UsernameTry to send the e-mail message, and then verify the e-mail message delivery to the recipient by using the new e-mail address.
An X500 address can be added to a mailbox, because old e-mail messages in a migrated mailbox contain these addresses. Therefore, if this address is not present in the new system, all of the replies to these old e-mail messages receive a non-delivery report (NDR).
