FIX: The LegacyDN of a user is displayed incorrectly in the From field in the Sent Items folder on an ActiveSync device

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013 EnterpriseExchange Server 2013 Standard Edition

Symptoms


In a Microsoft Exchange Server environment, consider the following scenario:
  • A user is hidden from the global address list (GAL).
  • The user has an Address Book Policy applied.

In this scenario, the From field on items in the Sent Items folder on an ActiveSync device shows the LegacyDN of the user instead of the display name or SMTP address.

Cause


The issue occurs because the LDAP search for the user is not resolved to their display name or SMTP address.
