Recipient Policy adding 80 email address with new user

We currently have a email server hosting roughly 80 differnt domains for different companies.  Lately everytime we add a new user it is adding ALL 80 email addresses.  It used to not add any except for the X400, which is what we want it to do.  We want to just create a user then add the Email addess ourselves.  I cannot find the setting anywhere.

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

We are running Exchange 2003 on Server 2003

Thanks,
Dan

In the Exchange System Manager, you can go to the 'Recipients' container and if you go to 'Recipient Policies', you will usually see the Default Policy. You can right click on this and see all the email addresses assigned. These are assigned to every user added. If you remove addresses here, then new users will not get them assigned. Make sure you right down any changes in case you need to revert back.

Also, at the user level you could remove the check box for 'Automatically Update Email Addresses Based on Recipient Policy'. This makes sure that the recipient policy never affects that individual user.

These are under a New recipient policy we added, not the Default Policy.

Recipient policy only adds email addresses based on the filter. You need to look at the filter and possibly test it to see whether the new users are under the filter.

There is a setting on each user account for recipient policy not to update automatically, but I don't think that is the setting that you want.

Thanks, I took your suggestion and modified it a bit.  I actually changed the recipient policy filter to only apply to items that have "All" in the Notes field.  Since no user has "All" inthe notes field no user gets automatically updated by the recipient policy.

Thanks,
Dan
