We have a bunch of email address policies and need to remove them. For example we have a mail domain policy for example ugly.com and it is applied to every OU through an email address policy. %m@ugly.com this is what shows up under email address policies. Is there a way as I have been looking through the command set-emailaddresspolicy to automate this process for all OU's. If I place the object type in a file and did a forloop can this be accomplished

$OU=get-content c:\temp\ou.csv
for (i in $ou) {
set-emailaddresspolicy  -id $_  %m@ugly.com

}

Also by removing the email address policy does it remove it from the existing alias. It does not appear to do this for the few I have done but wanted to confirm.

Answer to your query is, if you don't need that email policy for users, just remove it. Rest will be updated automatically. I don't see any reason for alias change, however email address will be removed for those policies, if automatically update check box is selected.

To remove the existing aliases from user mailboxes you can use 3rd party tools.
In the past I have used ADmodify to remove all email address for a particular domain.
The tool is free and very simple to use
