Exchange 2003

Hi
Is it possible to add a secondary email address to users on one Exchange server and for this not to affect users on aonther Exchange, all within the same AD forest?

Thanks

It can take a while for the updated policy to full replicate through the system, particularly if you have multiple servers.

yes, you can use filters to apply different recipient polices.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

The simple way to do this is to add the new domain to the recipient policy, but without ANY filters. That will mean no users will get email addresses in the domain automatically.

Then add the email address in that domain to those users who need one manually.

I don't understand your point. You can't have recipient policies set at a per server basis - they are global. You don't need to set any filter - as long as the domain is in recipient policy Exchange will accept email for that domain.

Exchange will accept email for the recipient policies that we have created but the thing it wont apply it on the user level unless or untill we do apply these policies who have added in the filters or add manually to the user
and if the customer had more than 5000 user in that server is that worth of adding address to each users?

What you do for one user, and what you do for 500 are very different. I agree with you there.

ok, so i'm not sure what you mean.  Is it possible just to add a secondary email address for one domain (with Exchange 2003 on this domain) and not affect the other domains (each of which have their own exchange).

All linked by forest?

There are a large number of users, so it would be nice to do this automatically rather than manually entering them.

Thanks

Yes, just go into Active Director, Email Addresses and add a second SMTP reference.  Be sure, first, that the domain address you are adding is in your DNS Forward Zone.

i have over 1000 users, is there a way to do this automatically, without having to enter them individually.

ok, i have added the new email address to the receipent policies but the address has been added as a secondary address to all users (even those that i dont want to have this address).  I have tried to manually remove the address but for some reason, when I go back into a user account, the email address repopulates.  I removed the email address form Recipient Policies but it keeps appearing from somewhere?

MesthaCommented:
Did you add it to the default recipient policy?
If so then it would go on to all of the users. You need to place it on a custom recipient policy, either with no filter (Which will mean it will not go on to all users) or with a filter to control which users it goes on to.

However to remove the address from all of the users now, you will need to use a tool such as admodify.net, as removing the domain from recipient policy will NOT remove it from the user accounts.

i have removed the @...com now from the recipient policy (all users now have this address), I will use admodify to remove the address but at the min when i try to remove them it just repopulates with the same address, even though i have removed it from the policy?
