Exchange 2010 update e-mail address policies

Hi,

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.

Thanks!

I dont see any screenshot attached here. Also, please specify the update that is being done to the email addresses. If you have any concerns about the email policy update you can always set the policy to a single mailbox or a set of test users to be confident.

Hi Rajitha,  Please see attached screenshot now.  There is no update being done to the e-mail addresses, we want all e-mail addresses and aliases to be preserved as is.  We just want to either update or remove these policies so we can get the HCW to complete successfully.  If you see the screenshot now, you can see the policies are not applied, does this mean we can erase them?  Let me know what you think and thanks.

Yes, as per the screenshot none of the policies are applied. But, if you have the check box "Automatically apply email address policy" selected on mailbox properties then the default policy would have been applied already.

Aliases are not modified by applying email address policy. Also, by applying a new email address policy existing email addresses will not be modified but any email addresses matching the policy are added and the primary email address (Reply To address) is updated as mentioned in the policy once it is applied.

Would the default policy be applied even if it's status is "false" under the applied column?  What impact do you think this will have if we just upgrade the policies to the 2010 version?  Thanks for that additional info.

Yes, it will be applied if the option that I mentioned in my earlier post is checked. There will be no impact as email address policies are at org level and will be migrated.
