Edit E-mail Address Policy

The wizard could not complete.

Error:

An Exchange 2007 server on which an address list service is active cannot be found.

This particular SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 was being tweaked as it is a restore into our lab cluster setup.

A quick search pointed to the Exchange System Attendant service not being online and sure enough it was not.

After starting the server we had a successful EAP change:

We could then move on to our next tasks at hand for this project.
