I have couple of smtp domain addresses in my default recipient policy e.g. @abc.com @xyz.com @123.com

and currently my primary SMTP address is @abc.com If i set my prmiary smtp to @xyz.com. Will it then immediately change my all existing user account primary SMTP to @abc.com? or will it only apply this change only on newly created users? Thanks

PS. currently my default policy set to lowest priority? does it make any difference as i have few other policies set to higher? thanks

If you change the primary address then yes it should update you recipients as well.

The reason the recipient policy is set to the lowest priority is so that it runs through the others first and then applies the last policy.

If you had filters on the other policies this would be a way of ensuring anyone who didnt match a filter got the default address.

Bear in mind that some users may not have the Email Policy applied to their email addresses if they don't have the tick box "Automatically update e-mail addresses based on recipient policy" ticked on the E-mail Addresses Tab in Active Directory Users and Computers.

Once you have applied the policy change, say Yes to update the policy now and then check all your users to make sure the policy has been applied.
