E-mail messages sent from the administrator in the Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 are from the postmaster account. The postmaster account is also used for sending non-delivery reports to external addresses. If you no longer want the account to be in use, then you can delete it at any time. The easiest way to remove the account is by using the Active Directory Users & Computers application. Also, you must be logged in as an administrator to fully remove the account.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" button from the desktop, and move your cursor over the "All Programs" option.

  2. 2

    Move your mouse over the "Microsoft Exchange" option, and tclick the "Active Directory Users and Computers" option.

  3. 3

    Click on the "plus sign" next to the "Users" field, and double-click on the "Administrator" account.

  4. 4

    Click the "Email Address" tab, and select the "" option. The domain portion of the address represents your domain name.

  5. 5

    Click the "Remove" button, and click the "OK" button in the Confirmation dialogue box. Click the "OK" button again, and your changes will be saved.
