Exchange 2007 Email Address Policy Not Applying

I have an email address policy for my domain name set to priority 1 and applied.
I want a secondary email address applied to all mailboxes. So I createda  new policy with a priority of 2. I apply the policy, but it doesnt write the secondary email address to the mailboxes.
All mailboxes are set to "automatically update email addresses based on email address policy".

Thoughts?

have you added the new email address as a new Accepted Domain in exchange?

please take a look at http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/management-administration/managing-email-address-policies.html

I did create the domain as an authoritative domain with default set to False.

Nothing in the logs at all. It goes through the application policy, and i see the mailbox names popping up, but it doesnt add the address.
I also have an exchange 2003 server on site with some mailboxes on it. FYI.

The Policy only applies when a new user is created. It wont retroactively add email addresses.

No solution was provided. I manually added the secondary email address to all accounts.
