    Question for all the Exchange Gurus here.

    Ok, so you have an exchange server set up with a default recipient policy with @123.com as the email domain. Then the company has another domain added and its @1234.com. The requirement is to add this to a group of users and not the whole organisation.

    Is there anyway this can be done, say by assigning a recipient policy to an OU for example?

    The reason I ask is if I add it to the default domain policy then the whole organisation (all users) get the new email domain. If I uncheck the domain in the default domain policy then I would have to add the new email domain as an alias to around 100 users. Not good! :blink

    Any help greatly appreciated! :biggrin

    you kinda answered your own question. yes, you can create an additional recipient policy (don't touch your default policy) and filter it to match the intended users (although i wouldn't filter by organizational unit myself). just watch your policy priority if you're going to use multiple recipient policies.

    [edit] by default the new policy only affects new accounts. to affect existing accounts, right-click the policy and select apply this policy now.

    Thanks for the reply; I will give it a try when I am in the office tomorrow. I was just thinking “There must be some way of doing this!” when I posted before. :biggrin

    I had an issue with the default recipient policy recently on my SBS server at home. I neglected to add my company's domain to the default policy and Exchange decided to eat *all* my incoming emails, even the ones to the original domain which was listed in the policy :eek: These emails were not recoverable so be careful!

    Thanks for the tip, I didn’t get a chance to try the new policy today but I think I’ll test it first on my own SBS before trying it on the clients server.

    Don’t want to get a P45 after screwing up the email! :biggrin
