Hello All,

Can anyone please help me in clarifying this matter regarding the Email address policy in my Exchange Server 2007 ?

Previously, my company got two email address that is accepted as follows for every users in the office:

SMTP
User1@domain1.com
User1@domain2.com

now, since I've been told by my manager that we no longer need the domain2.com email address, how can I make the changes reflected to 500+ mailboxes in my Exchange Server 2007 SP1 ?

Can I just go to EMC, then Organization Configurations | Hub Transport then go to Email Address Policies

then select or edit the policies in the wizard to remove the secondary email address ?

Wait firstly you should get Domain2.com out of the Accepted domain list

Once done remove that from the Email address policy and hit apply to all users again
