Questions about adding users

  Asked By: Miriam    Date: Mar 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 501

I have a quick question. When you add an user to a site, and use the
address book, how is Sharepoint getting the info.

For example,

My address book has my name as a contact and the email is for say
jsmith@... <mailto:jsmith@...>

However, when it selects that it associates me with some other domain
account, dave\jsmith. But my account is really dave\john.smith

Just wondering where to go to fix this.

It's doing a lookup in the AD for a user  object with that mail address.
So I'd check out dave\jsmith to see what email  addresses it has
associated with it in the AD.

I think you have multiple accounts on the active directory server. When we add
the user  sharepoint gets the info  from the ADS.
