Default Recipient Policy

Hi,
I have new Exchange 2003. The default recipient policy is user@activedirectorydomainname.com I need to change this since my company active directory and email domain names are different.
Could anyone tell me should I edit this default policy, add a second recipient policy, or delete the default and create new one?

Thanks,
Donnie

HOW TO: Configure Recipient Policies in Exchange
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;249299

Create Recipient Policies in the Exchange System Manager
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, click System Manager
In the left System Manager window pane, click to expand Organization, click to expand Recipients, and then click Recipient Policies.

Note In the right pane, there is a Default Policy that applies to all recipients. In mixed mode, there is a Default Policy for each site.
Right-click Recipient Policies, point to New, and then click Recipient Policy.
Specify an LDAP filter (that is, to whom the policy applies) and the e-mail addresses for these recipients.
Also note that Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003 support automatic generation of secondary e-mail addresses.

I would just add a second recipient policy to make sure you do not lose any email during the transition.

To add a new domain to you exchange 2003 supported domain list:

Open exchange manager.

1 Open recipient group,
2 Open recipient policies,
3 Open Recipient policies's properties
4 Open email addresses policy tab
5 Click new - SMTP addresses
5 type in @yourdomain.com
aply and ok.

That'S it! nothing else to do.. you only have to register the name with your DNS provider. and ask to to create an mx record for it.

Thanks for reply.
So, do you mean leave the smtp address for active directory domain there? Since mail will not be sent/delivered can I remove it?

Keep both... if you ever decide to get the second domain, it will be there :) doesnt hurt to keep it.

From here can I specify the format of the email address? Example: username to log in to AD domain is firstInitialLastname@domainName.com which has to be changed since the email address is FirstNameLastName@emaildomain.com
