Exchange 2003 recpient policy based on AD Group membership


I've got an Exchange 2003 server set up, and I'd like to create recipient policies based on the users AD group membership.  For instance, I'd like to create a recipient policy that purges the spam and deleted items folders afger 30 days - I've been able to do this successfully.  Now, I'd like to use the Advanced search functions to apply this policy to, say everyone in the Advertising group.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

I have a global security group called ZooMail that I use in a recipient policy to create an smtp address just for users who are members of that group.

it looks like this:

(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*))) )))(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=ZooMail,OU=Zoo Society,OU=Executive,OU=CON Users,DC=yourdomain,DC=gov)))

seems as if i had instructions for this at some point, but i can't seem to locate them.


did this help you?

Sorry, Kris, it did not.  I can see what your solution is doing, but I can't figure out how to get those results thru that stupid wizard!  I'd love to cut/paste that into the recipient policy, then make the necessary changes...

here are the MS instructions on how to do it. Still can't seem to find the other ones I had, but maybe this will help. It's really not that hard.
