Exchange 2010 update e-mail address policies
Posted on 2014-12-01
We need to update the E-mail Address Policies on our Exchange 2010 server, because when we run the Hybrid Config Wizard, it fails with 'The recipient policy "default policy" with mailbox manager settings cannot be managed by the current version of Exchange Management Console. please use a management console with the same version as the object.
A screenshot of e-mail policies is attached to this question. If you notice the Applied column, you will see they are all set to false.
It appears we need to run this cmdlet: Set-EmailAddressPolicy "Default Policy" -IncludedRecipients AllRecipients
We are nervous about upgrading the default policy and the sub-policies and it messing up the e-mail addresses on all the Exchange objects? Is this a valid concern, or does it not even matter since the policies do not seem to be applied. Can we just erase these policies? What is the recommendation.
