thanks for this… its really annoying to have to find the exchange cd and install the whole system management tools in order to manage email addresses from another server.

Thanks for this, 112 mb vs 1mb. Much better solution!

Excellent! Saved me some time and hassle this morning and will continue to do so. Subscribed, thanks.

Did you copy the address.dll?

Blake May 18, 2011 at 7:59 pm

The reference to address.dll needs to be on it's own line as Brad found out (as I did) it's too easy to miss where it's at now. Also, GLBLNAME.DLL. is misspelled. Other than that, spot on and Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, I have updated the DLL name and moved the address.dll to a seperate line.

This works beautifully!

Mahalo for this elegant workaround to Microsoft foolishness.

Ours is a Windows 2003, no Exchange (iMail is the legacy email server). We have migrated to Google Apps, and sync our AD & Google accounts. Having an alias email field is critical to us. I understand that the “eMail” tab has an alias field. I also understand that the eMail tab comes either in later versions of Windows (2008?) or when Exchange is installed.

Can the eMail tab be installed in any other way?

FYI, These DLLs are also found on the EXCH 2003 disk, with the exception of glblname.dll. I was able integrate and use the tasks without copying said dll.
Either way that you do it (Copy from disk/ copy from server) it’s MUCH faster than the “Microsoft way”

To improve on my earlier comment, all the DLLs, including glblname.dll can be found within 03 Exchange SP2 found here :

109 MB, quick download.

I need to know how to remove the 2003 Exchange Tabs and Tasks in the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in without loading Exchange System Manager, rebooting, and then uninstalling. Assuming it was installed manually initially as per the instructions above. Can I just remove the DLL files?

is it just me or is the article and downloads gone?
