Hi

I am attempting to convert my 2003 to Exchange 2010 recepient policies but it keeps failing.  The command I am running is Set-EMailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecepients AllRecepients

and the error I always get is :-
 Error
I have searched everywhere with no success.  One thing I have checked is that the mailbox manager is not in use on 2003 and it is not selected.

Any help would be very appreciated

thanks

Mark

you will need to run

Get-EmailAddressPolicy | where {$_.RecipientFilterType –eq “Legacy”} | Set-EmailAddressPolicy –IncludedRecipients AllRecipients
       

refer this url for complete process

Hi

I get the same error message as before when I run that command and have attached a screen shot.  The legacy recepient policies dont actually show up as Legacy but you can see from the screen shot that they belong to the old version of exchange

do you have Mailbox Manager policies by any chance?

also,

if Office Filter Packs are installed properly?
can you verify that Set-EmailAddressPolicy cmdlet works perfectly?

Mailbox Manager is not selected on the 2003 server and we only have two email policies.

I havent installed any office filter packs, should I have?

How do I verify the Set-EmailAdddressPolicy cmdlet works properly?  

thanks for your help

if on Exchange 2010 SP1 then you will need Office 2010 filter packs
