E-mail Address Polciyies

I just finished setting up Exchange 2010.  We still have Exchange 2003 servers as well.  Now my e-mail address policies are not working.

I have 40 e-mail address policies that assign e-mail addresses based on OU and now that is not working.

When I modify or create new policies I receive the following message:
You can't specify the recipient container because legacy servers are detected.

I use to be able to do this.

You can't specify the recipient container because legacy servers are detected.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
set-EmailAddressPolicy -IncludedRecipients 'AllRecipients' -ConditionalDepartment @() -ConditionalCompany @() -ConditionalStateOrProvince @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute1 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute2 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute3 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute4 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute5 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute6 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute7 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute8 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute9 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute10 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute11 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute12 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute13 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute14 @() -ConditionalCustomAttribute15 @() -RecipientContainer '' -EnabledEmailAddressTemplates 'X400:c=US;a= ;p=MestekCorporate;o=Exchange;','' -Name ' (Company)' -Identity ' (Company)'

If 2003 servers are not decommissioned yes do NOT follow any instruction about deleting the  CN=server via ADSIEdit.
