Do I need to specify any email addresses (policy) in the Recipient Policies for Exchange Server 2003?
Posted on 2008-06-26
I administer a small LAN w/a single Exchange Server 2003. I'm overdue to ask this question:
Typically, when adding a new user, I don't want the LAN user ID to be the same as the email recipient name. e.g. I may create a user ID of "ssmith" but want an email address of "email@example.com". The Exchange Server default recipient policies, however, would automatically create an SMTP address for this user that = firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know I can manually change email addresses for each individual user. What I'd like to do is simply not have the system automatically assign any email addresses at the time of user ID creation. In short, I'd like to uncheck all email addresses listed in the Recipient Policies so that email addresses aren't generated automatically for me. Is that possible? If so, it it unwise to do that?
Any feedback appreciated.
