Hi All,

Currently we have one email policy in our exchange 2007 environment.
in it are defined 4 different address types for each user (primary/default  domain user@my-domain.com, user@siblingdomain.com etc etc)

Here is the deal: I need to add another email address and make it the default/reply to for all existing users: @mydomain.com. all the other addresses should still remain intact for all users.  im hoping that this does not require manual labor / data entry.

So i would like to know if i can do this by  using and modyfying the existing policy and then rerunning it.  if not, do i create a new / another email policy  that includes all the email addys, including the new default one?

Note:  the new domain @mydomain.com is already configured on exchange end  as an accepted domain and tested with several users whom i added the new  addy manually and its all working great.

thanks for the help

Perfect if so add it to the Email policy and next time you create a user it should be stamped with new email address as well

Please do Apply the Email policy once new DOmain\Emailaddress added to Email policy :)

Rancy, just to clarify, after i add the new address to the policy, i should re-apply it - this will add the new address to all already existing users in my organisation?

Yes- once you update the email policy, it should update the existing users. You just have to make sure you set it to actually apply when you run it.
