Exchange 2003 recipient policy problem

Medium Priority

I recently had to remove our primary SMTP email address from the default recipient policy so that I can share the smtp namespace with our Exchange 2007 enviornment.  I did create a new recipient policy and added the SMTP address making it primary and making it non authoritative.  I notice that when I create a new user account and mail enable it, it is taking the primary SMTP email address from the default recipient policy and not from the new recipient policy.  I thought it would take from the new recipient policy as it has a higher priority.

Thanks very much.  Moving this up in priority did the trick.
