Unity connection - Alertnate extension - Error

I added a voicemail box for a new user. While trying to define an alertnate extension, I get the following error:

"A User with the specified extension already exists in the Partition."

Now, the extension previously belonged to another user, but that mailbox was deleted before defining it for this user.

Is there anything that I m missing -- if I need to delete the old user related information.

Thanks.

Re: Unity connection - Alertnate extension - Error

I would guess that when the old mailbox was deleted, that extension was added as an alternate extension onto someone else's voice mailbox.  You can check that by searching for that extension in under Users.  The trick is that the default search does not return alternate extensions.  To find those, you need to limit the search to a paritular partition.  When you do that, you have the option of returning only primary extensions or primary and alternate extensions.  Of course, if you have multiple partitions, you need to search each partition seperately.
