I'm trying to do the simple task of sending emails to end-users when their case is closed on the database.
Normally I simply use DBMail and sp_send_mail; no problems.

But the only email addresses available are of the form 'EX:/O=xxx/OU=site/cn=Recipients/cn=nnn.mmmm' which I am given to understand arise from Exchange.

Anyway I can't get them to work, and so far haven't found anything about it on the net.

Anyone have an idea? All offers gratefully accepted.
thanks

I'm not quite sure what you mean by only addresses are in the form of. That is an active directory string that will relate to the object in active directory. There will surely be an email address related to the object. Do you have access to your active directory to check?

Cheers

Thanks even for that information. This is not an area I've ever dealt with before. (Was that English?).
I don't have access to active directory, but I can pass this part of it over to the people who look after it, and they may be able to create a lookup function.

What I meant by 'only addresses are in the form of' was that these strings occur in a database column labelled 'email address' and all other email related columns are blank/null.
I don't know who wrote the back-end for this package/database, but I would dearly like to meet them. To 'Remonstrate with them' in the perported words of St. Benedict.
Needless to say, there is no documentation.

thanks
