I am having this issue below. I followed the articles below and still getting an error. I have Server Management and Organization Management permissions.

Issue: unable to update the email policy on Exchange 2010 from 2003. Getting an error:  The recipient is invalid and couldn’t be updated.

Ran the following command from EMS:

You need to remove the Mailbox Manager settings on Exchange 2003 in order for this to work. If you have this setting in the ESM on Exchange 2003 it will fail. Do the steps below...

On Exchange 2003 server
1.Login to Exchange 2003 server
2.Open Exchange System Manager
3.Expand Recipients, click Recipient Policies
4.Select a policy, right click and select “Change Property Pages…”
5.Uncheck Mailbox Manager Settings, click OK
* do this step for all policies…

On Exchange 2007 server
1.After the above changes have been made, login to “hocamcas1”
2.Open a Powershell Prompt
3.Type the following command set-emailaddresspolicy –Identity “policy name” –Includedrecipients allrecipients -forceupgrade
*this will upgrade the email address policy from 2003 to 2007, need to be done for all email address policies
