An error message is shown if an existing AD only user on the Exchange 2013 resource is mail enabled with RecipientType attribute set to "MailUser" or "UserMailbox":


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Open existing AD only user on the Exchange resource (RecipientType=User)
  2. Mail enable this user: Set RecipientType=UserMailbox, set proxyAdresses, Database and PrimarySmtpAddress values.
  3. Save the user. The changes are saved to the user, but the above error message is shown.
