When you try to add or remove SMTP addresses for distribution groups by using Exchange Admin Center (EAC) in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 environment, you receive the following error message:

Conversion from Microsoft.Exchange.Management.ControlPanel.EmailAddressItem to Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddress has not been implemented.


This issue occurs because Windows PowerShell cannot identify the EmailAddressItem type.


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:

2892464 Description of Cumulative Update 3 for Exchange Server 2013


To work around this issue, connect Windows PowerShell to the Exchange Online service, and then use the Set-DistributionGroup cmdlet to add or remove SMTP addresses.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
