In this video we show how to create an email address policy in Exchange 2013. We show this process by using the Exchange Admin Center.

Video Steps

1. Log into Exchange Admin Center.

First we need to log into the Exchange Admin Center.

2. Navigate to the Mail Flow >> Email Address Policy tab.

Then to create an Email Address Policy we need to navigate to the "Mail Flow" tab on the left hand side. Then we need to click on the "Email Address Policy" tab along the top.

3. Click the + "New" button.

If this is a global change we recommend making the policy changes on the Default Policy. You can do this by selecting the policy and clicking the "Edit" (pencil) button. Make the changes you need and click the "Save" button. However, in our video we will create a custom policy to match only members of the Time Travel Research department to a specific email domain. To create a new Email Address Policy we need to click on the + "New" button.

4. Specify a policy name, email address format and policy rules.

Specify a policy name. Click the plus "+" button under Email Address Format to build a custom email domain. In our example we select one of our accepted domains as the email domain (everything to the right of @). Then we chose alias as the address format (everything to the left of @). Click "Save”. Specify the recipient types to include, whether "All Recipient Types" or "Only the following recipient types". Define any recipient rules using the “Add a rule” button. Test with the “Preview” link.

5. Click Save.

Click the "Save" button to create the email address policy.

6. Apply the Policy.

Click the "Apply" link on the right to activate the policy. Click the "Yes" button to confirm. Click Close when successful.

7. To edit the email address policy select it and click the Edit (pencil) button.

 To edit the email address policy select it and click the Edit (pencil) button. Click the "Save" button once you have made your changes.

8. To delete the email address policy select it and click Remove (trashcan) button.

To delete the email address policy select it and click the "Remove" (trashcan) button. Click "Yes" to Confirm.

Very nice series of videos. I wish the video player application had a full screen option like YouTube. It can be really difficult to see options in the video.

Hey locojalapeno,

Glad you like it! The full screen mode is in the bottom right hand corner. It looks like two arrows pointing away from each other. You can also change the definition as well. By default it shows in 540. But you can also select it to show in HD 1080p. Check the screenshot below.
