Exchange 2007 E-mail Address Policy

In my Exchange 2007 Server that I am now tasked to administer I have 4 policies listed in the TAB for E-mail Address Policies. We get mail for 4 domains into our server. The policies for #1 and #2 and #3 domains are all APPLIED = TRUE.
The default domain or should I say the Main domain is not listed in 1,2 or 3. So I expect that the DEFAULT Policy is supposed to take care of these users. But in the APPLIED column it is marked as APPLIED = FALSE.
I assume that since it is APPLIED=FALSE that it will not effect exixting mailboxes.

So my question is this. Does this Policy actually apply to my new users as I create mail boxes for them even though it is APPLIED=FALSE?

Correct, if it is applied=False then it's not enabled.  Therefore will not be used when creating mailboxes.

So if I understand your answer then, Since the DEFAUT POLICY / APPLIED=FALSE then ...
A) It will not effect existing Mail Boxes
B) It will not be applied to New Mail Boxes as they are created either

correct, however, it will not remove the addresses from mailboxes that have had it applied to them just because it has been set to false.
