Exchange 2007 email address policy

I am in process completeing a migration of 2003 to 2007 exchange.  This migration was part accomplished when i came on board.  There are many accepted authorized domains.  The default email policy was set but not applied.  The default policy will chaneg all users and contacts to default domain email.  the contacts and other users cannot have there email policies changed,  the automatic update email address policy is checked on all users and contacts,  The one company has 3 OUs with users of one domain i dont want updated.  How to accomplish task?  i know i can select each user and contact individually and manually uncheck that box.  Is there another way?  Several hundred users and contacts are affected?

The issue at hand is that the Default policy has never been applied, there is no option to delete only edit and apply.  If applied it will change around 600 user account reply settings.  I reviewed your link but being a novice it is quite confusing, thank you

no need to mess with existing policy just create new policy for new accepted domains and apply that policy to the required OU's only

have a look at this link http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/migration-deployment/shared-hosting-exchange-2007-part1.html

Great , one more question, how do apply the default policy to entire organization and not have it apply any changes.   the policy was i guess imported from exchnage 2003?  i received a error about being a legacy policy, i used the set command to set default policy however policy is not applied.  So i guess i am asking is there a way to apply the default policy without making any chnages to the organization?

the default policy is applied by default since your exchange setup. but if you have made any changes in it you can update it
by using the following cmdlet:-
Update-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity "YourPolicyName"
