email address attribute

Hi,

I obtained the email address for GroupWise users and I saw that it has a
specific pattern 7#GWObjectID@Domain.PostOffice

When I try to send an email to one of GroupWise users using the obtained
email address, the send mail operation failed.

when I use only a part of the email address (GWObjectID@Domain.Post
Office) the mail is sent successfully.

Can you tell me what is the signification for "7#" ?
It is ok to remove the "7#" part from email address?

Thanks in advance,
V Mandache.

You might ask this question in the GroupWise Admin forum as some of the
admins there would know what this is used for.

Re: email address attribute

AFAIK, It's not used

It's a one way update from GW to eDir...So the #7 might simply be a bug

Re: email address attribute

What attribute are you reading this address from?

Looks like this is the "Email Address" attribute.
As I recall, the 7# is an indicator of the type of address that follows.
