We have exchange 2010 server in mixed mode with Exchange 2003 server we want to create a new Address list from Exchange 2010 console and the error below is received.  I found information that it is because we are not in e2k10 native mode and we need upgrate the Default address list.
We have other Recipients Address list created in E2k2003 and in use for E2k03 mailboxes  we do not want affect it just create a new one for this E2k10 . Do you have any information about the shell command for apply the upgrade to new address list?

You can't specify the recipient container because legacy servers are detected.
Exchange Management Shell command attempted:

new-AddressList -Name 'CXXX Nb Recipients' -RecipientContainer 'xociu.IAR.ORG/Users' -IncludedRecipients 'AllRecipients' -Container '\' -DisplayName 'CXXX Nb Recipients'

Thanks Tony. I found the same article but it is base in filtering "Company" field and I want to know if it possible use container field after upgrade the default policy. Also  I want to make sure that if we upgrade the default policy it will allow to use the container option and it does not affect the e2k03 using their current recipients.
