i've accedently added an exchange alias for all users in y domain using the reciepient policy. (e.g. @somedomain)

i know it wont be deleted if i simply delete the policy..

Try to remove the policy and after doing that run the Recipient Update Services, select the service and force with "update now". This should update the email addresses in the AD.

hope it helps
