I have several errors that I've been working on for weeks to get figured out in AD. I'm at a point now where I just want to delete all GP and recreate from scratch. How can I do that without affecting Exchange mailboxes? What are things to consider?

    There is no real "start over" button with group policy you can remove/unlink the policies and for most settings this means the policy will be removed but certain settings get "tattooed"  Darren has a great article that explains that

    You could start by creating a new OU and blocking inheritance on that OU and adding a new box to that OU and seeing if the errors persist.
