SMTP address must be removed from 7000 P

By setmajer ·
Does anyone know of a way to remove SMTP addresses from 7000+ public folders other than going to each and every one of them?
If I could prevent the server from forwarding smtp addressed e-mails to those PF's - that would work too. This is a dedicated Public Folder server. Exchange5.5 SP3

What you want done is possible. First you need to export the public folder data to a .csv file. There you will see a field for e-mail addresses. Remove the addresses in this field for the public folder. (You can automate this easily if you are good with excel or you can use a simple find and replace.) Next import the information back into Exchange. Check out the KB from Microsoft Article I Q185018 for assistance on the export process. If you have the time or resources you might want to run this in a test environment first. Hope this helps!

What you want to use if a utility located on the Backoffice resource kit called PFINFO. You create a MAPI profile that has a mailbox located on a server that has a replica of the Public folders, and then run PFINFO. This creates 2 files. The file PFINFO.TXT is in CSV format so can easily be imported into excel. Use the AUtoFilter option within Excel to filter all the SMTP address. If you're changing domain name you'll be able to use the 'Find and Replace' option.
Hope this helps.
