    Thanks for the article. I experienced this same error message and by following your steps found that my email wasn’t populated. I was able to continue with your article and get everything synced up. I’m still experiencing the same error message which is confusing me but at least I have email attached to profiles now.

    I’ve followed these exact instructions (actually did ages ago, but re-visiting now) but still have no email in my Sharepoint profiles… Any ideas on what I should try next?

      Sorry I haven’t been paying attention to the comments on this post. Were you able to get this resolved? The email address is populated fine inside of Active Directory? I assume by this point you’ve done a full sync again rather than just an incremental?

    I was able to fix it – I just have to leave our farm acct in the local admin group longer & deal w/the security warnings. We’re working on excluding the UPS service from backup, but our backups were causing UPS to be re-provisioned very frequently, & since the farm acct wasn’t in local admin, the re-provision failed.

    Hello… I’m stucked in the step on editing de “User Property”. I can’t edit the “Work email” property. I can’t clic in any place in order to get displayed the drop down box to select “Edit”.

    I’m logged as Administrator. Am I missing something here? Thanks!

    Never mind. I found my issue. I was logging to Sharepoint Central Administration directly in the server hosting Sharepoint. I tried from another computer and worked well, now I can edit the properties. I think it was something like a security issue of the server or Internet Explorer preventing to edit the properties.
