I just installed Exchange 2007 enterprise 64 bit sp1 on my Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise 64 sp2 server
I have two Windows 2003 R2 Standard DC server SP2
Also one member server Windows 2000 SP4 with Exchange server 2000 SP3

Exchange 2007 installed successfully no errors I could find here is my question

On exchange 2000 you setup the email address policy using system manager expand recipent policies properties of Default policy the on the email address policy tab you can define the smtp address

I am tring to figure how to do that in 2007

I am doing this

Exchange Management console
organization configuration
hub transport
email address policies
default policy then click edit
I get this error

Unable to edit the specified email address policy. Email address policies created with legacy versions of exchange must be upgraded using the set-emailadresspolicy task with the exchange 2007 recipient filter specified

So I then tried the Exchange Management shell and got these results

        Welcome to the Exchange Management Shell!

 Full list of cmdlets:          get-command
 Only Exchange cmdlets:         get-excommand
 Cmdlets for a specific role:   get-help -role *UM* or *Mailbox*
 Get general help:              help
 Get help for a cmdlet:         help <cmdlet-name> or <cmdlet-name> -?
 Show quick reference guide:    quickref
 Exchange team blog:            get-exblog
 Show full output for a cmd:    <cmd> | format-list

Tip of the day #32:

Do you want to change the authentication settings on an Outlook Web Access virtu
al directory? Try the following command as an example. It changes authentication
 from forms-based authentication to Windows authentication:

 Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity "OWA (Default Web Site)" -FormsAuthentication
 0 -WindowsAuthentication 1

[PS] C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.OUR>set -emailaddresspolicy -recipi
Set-Variable : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'emailad
At line:1 char:24
+ set -emailaddresspolicy <<<<  -recipientfilter
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-Variable], ParameterBi
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Comm

Am i in the right place?

What Am I doing wrong here

I guess when exchange 2007 installed it connected to my exchange 2000 serve and gathered information will I need to convert everything

Also I found this article but it is kind of confusing


any help would be great

I have found that it is best to recreate the policies, unless they are really too numerous or complex for that to be practical.

[PS] C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.OUR>set -emailaddresspolicy -recipi
Set-Variable : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'emailad

It shoudl be set-emailaddresspolicy -> without space.
Not sure if that fix this  issue.

Good luck
