change default email in exchange 2010 for all users

I am looking to use the minimal amount of administration to change all of my default e-mail accounts in my domain to a new e-mail address starting October 8th.  I am not sure how to do it with a large number of users outside of going in user by user and changing their account but in 200 users this can be time consuming.  Currently all users have 5 e-mail address.  the username@mail1.com would be there default.  I need to make the new default to be username@mail2.com be their new default.  I heard there is a way using EMS using a get and a set command which sounds the easiest, but what would the commands be or is there an easier way via the EMC?

I would use the tool ADModify to make these changes.  It's free and will allow you to do all the changes in bulk.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I don't see how that would select a second e-mail address as the new default.  All conditions don't apply so I said all recieptient types on the introduction, on the e-mail address section it looks like I enter my new default e-mail adress, but it dosen't say it will set it as the default.

I reviewed my default policy for some guidence and I can't see where you set the default.  It has one e-mail address selected as the default and is bolded, but I need to set a new bolded (default) account.  What controls that?
