Hey guys,

I'm going through our recipient policy on exchange and I'm trying to figure out what this LDAP means:

(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)
(objectCategory=publicFolder)(objectCategory=msExchDynamicDistributionList) ))))

Any help is appreciated

    The above LDAP means that the Recipient Policy will be applied to
    1)All Users with Exchange Mailboxes
    2)Mail enabled Groups
    4)Public Folders that are mail enabled
    5)Query Based Distribution Groups.

    In short, the recipient policy you are creating will effect all users in your AD and Exchange environment.
