Implementing Your Administrative Model

Apply Policies to Objects

After creating a policy, you add Exchange objects of the same type to it.

To apply policies to objects:

  1. Start System Manager: On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Under the organization or administrative group item, click System Policies. In the Details pane, right-click the policy you want to modify, and then click Add Public Store for a public store policy, Add server for a server policy, or Add mailbox for a mailbox policy.
  3. Select an object from the upper section of the window, click Add, and then click OK.
  4. In the Microsoft Exchange Administrator dialog box, which prompts you to verify that you want to add the object to the policy, click Yes.
  5. If the object is under the control of another policy, another Microsoft Exchange Administrator dialog box prompts you to verify whether you want to remove the object from the control of the other policy. Click Yes.
