Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

How much time have you given it? In my organization it typically takes 30 minutes for the information to replicate and propogate the email address tab.
Do you have any errors in the event log?
Also check your recipient policy and try updating the RUS.

    In Exchange 2003 to update the RUS, open Exchange System Manger, expand the recipients container, click the recipient update service (RUS). Either double-click your RUS or right click and choose properties and make sure the update interval is set to what you want: hourly, every 2 hrs, always, or select customize and put in your own time selection. You can also check to see if it has the correct server to run the RUS. Next close the properties window, right-click the RUS and select "update now". If that still does not get things resolved you can also right click and choose rebuild. That may take a while depending on the size of your organization.
