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

I already upgraded Default email adddress policy. That's the problem cause i can not remove the additional  SMTP address that was setup from 2003. And those SMTP address doesn't show up on the Upgrded Defautl email address policy.

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'
