Upgrading Recipient Policy

When I run the following: Set-EmailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients, I get an error:
Set-EmailAddressPolicy : The recipient policy "Default Policy" with mailbox man
ager settings cannot be managed by the current version of Exchange Management C
onsole. Please use a management console with the same version as the object.
At line:1 char:23

I found an article stating I need to remove the values in the "msExchMaiboxManagerFolderSettings". I have numoruous settings, (ie. contacts, Inbox, Journal etc..) Am I supposed to remove all?

Also, I went to the "msExchPolicyOptionList" and found two entries, none of which have the characters in the previous article. How do I determine which one should be removed, if any?

Yes, you have to remove them all.
It is a pain point, but has to be done unfortunately.

OK, so how do I determine the correct entry in the "msExchPolicyOptionList" to remove?

Its hard to know without being in front of the system.
I usually just go through the entire recipient policy and remove everything, and then recreate the settings using the Managed Folder system in Exchange 2007.

I believe the Exchange 2007 readiness test in the Best Practises tool in the Toolbox should flag what needs to be removed.

I followed your instructions, in the "msExchMaiboxManagerFolderSettings" I removed the managed objects. I went into the System Manager on the legacy 2003 exchange server and removed all managed mailbox settings. This automatically removed the appropriate string in "msExchPolicyOptionList". I then ran command: Set-EmailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients, and it worked. Thank you for your assistance, you are an asset to the IT Community!

Mestha, are you saying that within ADSI edit you remove ALL attributes (meaning to clear their values?) form the E-Mail Address Policy?  Is there any cycling of services or replication necessary to get set-emailaddresspolicy command to initiate the upgrade?

Exchange 2003 Management Tools are unavailable to me, so I'm trying to get rid of the Managed Folder stuff from the current EAP so I can upgrade it via the Exchange Shell.

steckelj - this is an old question. Unlike a forum it is not possible to "bump" questions back up the list. The only people who will see your post are those that have already participated. Instead you should post your question as a new question in the Exchange Server Zone which will allow other experts the chance to see the question and respond.
