Note Recipient policies are designed to replace the function of site addressing in Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, with a little more flexibility. Site addressing applied proxy addressing rules to all users in a site, whereas recipient policies give more flexibility on how you group the users to whom the addressing rules apply.
In Exchange Server 5.5 or Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server mixed-mode, only the default recipient policy is in effect. The default recipient policy is created based on the site addressing of the Exchange Server 5.5 site. The default recipient policy that is based on the site addressing of the Exchange Server 5.5 site permits backward compatibility with Exchange Server 5.5. In native-mode, multiple recipient policies can be in effect on different groups of users.
- Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, click System Manager
- In the left System Manager window pane, click to expand Organization, click to expand Recipients, and then click Recipient Policies.
Note In the right pane, there is a Default Policy that applies to all recipients. In mixed mode, there is a Default Policy for each site.
- Right-click Recipient Policies, point to New, and then click Recipient Policy.
- Specify an LDAP filter (that is, to whom the policy applies) and the e-mail addresses for these recipients.
