Hi,

What do you mean by setting an address policy to false ??? Disable it ??

Address Policies are applied with a filter that selects mail objects on which the policy should apply. You can then modify the filter so that the policy will never apply.

You have to know that address policies can add new e-mail addresses on a mail object (mail contact, mailbox, ...)  but WILL NEVER REMOVE previous e-mail addresses.
So if you want to disable an address policy to remove e-mails that this policy added, it will not help.

Also, the "default address policy" can not be removed and its filter can not be modified. This default address policy applies on every object if there is no other address policy before it that applies.


Have a good day.

before removing it, I want to disable it.

I have some address policies here, some are set to TRUE and some are set to FALSE.

Hi again,

As far as I know there is no "Enabled" or "Disabled" property on address policy objects.

So in my opinion, a way to avoid application of an address policy without removing it would to change the IncludedRecipients property to "None":

Set-EmailAddressPolicy -Name "name of to address policy" -IncludedRecipients None


Have a good day

Me again...

The column "Applied Status" that shows True or False has nothing to do with the fact that the policy is enabled or not.
The "Applied status" is only about the fact your manually forced reapplication of the policy.

If a policy exists, it applies to new mailbox on mail object created.
If a policy exists and you change the policy settings you'll have the choice to reapply immediatly the policy to already existing mail object when you save the changes.

So again, in my opinion the only way to keep the policy but avoid application of this policy is to modify the filter so that none object will be concerned, by setting "IncludedRecipients" to None.
But of course you should note the previous value of "IncludedRecipients" to be able to go back to previous state if you finally decide to keep the address policy.
