We upgraded from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 but did not follow a true upgrade path. We upgrade the recipient policy in Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 before remove the additional SMTP addresses from the policy. Now, can’t remove the other accepted domain because the Default emails address policy contains those email address. But I can’t remove the address from Default email address policy. And I can’t use Exchange 2003 to modify it anymore..  So, my question is how can I delete the additional SMTP address from the Default email address policy then remove Accepted Domain?

You can use the exchange cmdlet set-emailaddresspolicy
To get the syntax you need type this

get-help set-emailaddresspolicy -full

So you are looking for a way to remove additional addresses from the proxyaddresses attribute?


If that is correct I am not sure of an easy way to do it using the exchange cmdlets. But you can use the quest AD cmdlets. The command would be this

get-qaduser | remove-qadproxyaddress -Pattern '*@domain.com'

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...
