Assigning email addresses using recipient policy to specific OUs in AD

Hi

I have a new exchange 2003 server which i have installed and am currently migrating a 5.5 server into it. I have migrated my user accounts from nt4 into a new AD and created OUs as requested by the company. Now using recipient policy I want to assign a specific email address to each OU. Now i created a new recipient policy, modified the filter to search for OU's, input the name of the OU and clicked find now, this found it fine. I then setup the emails and then clicked apply now. The policy wont apply my custom emails to the specific OUs I want. I was wondering if the default recipient policy was over riding it but I cant see how?

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

you could use the filter based on some custom attributes.
for that you will first have to add the custom attribute to the user and then configure the policy based on that attribute
admodify.net can be used to modify user attributes in bulk
try it on a test OU first

According to the following article recipient policy cannot be applied on an OU

Cannot use an organizational unit or the location of an account for recipient policy

You might have to specify the policy settings filter based on atributes

Yeah I just found and read that myself too. I was also suggested to use security groups and add members to that. This however just assigns the email address to the security group itself not to the members of it.

Any other ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks
