Adding a recipient policy to only an OU
Posted on 2006-05-22
We need to add a new email address to our exchange setup.
The exchange server is currently setup for addresses of email@example.com
We now need to accept emails addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org for a new set of users
The email domain (companypoland.pl) is registered and the MX is pointing to us so the only thing left to do is assign emails to the new domain address users. I would like to create all these new users in a new OU and automatically apply recipient policy to give them their new address @companypoland.pl but dont want this to apply to all users in the organisation, I have tried to apply a recipient policy with a filter on it to filter by OU, when creating this, the LDAP query appears as (&(ou>=""))
Is it me or should this be something like
(&(ou>="Staff Users/Company Poland"))
Either way I have tried creating this by firstly selecting the ou which gives, (&(ou>=""))
and also creating a direct ldap query with syntax (&(ou>="Staff Users/Company Poland"))
After applying both these and forcing them the addresses are still not given to the users in that OU, it is as if it is ignored.
The policy has priority2 and is set to be responsible for all mails sent to this domain (new poland one)
Anyone any ideas?
Am I doing something wrong?
Will up points if it is a long job,
