Exchange 2000 features two kinds of recipient policies: one is
for e-mail addresses and the other affects mailboxes.
E-mail address policies generate e-mail addresses for your
users, contacts, and groups, while mailbox policies restrict the
age and size of messages stored in users' mailboxes. Both kinds of
recipient policies can be created, modified, and prioritized
through System Manager, and both can be applied to all users or
only a select few.
E-Mail Address Recipient Policies. For each e-mail
address recipient policy you create, you can define the membership
of the recipient policy and select the address types for policy
members. E-mail addresses are used to define the valid formats for
addressing inbound e-mail to the Exchange system. E-mail addresses
identify recipients to the gateways and connectors that connect
Exchange with other messaging systems. More...
Mailbox Recipient Policies. For each mailbox recipient
policy you create, you can define the membership of the recipient
policy and choose to move or delete messages from some or all
folders in the mailboxes of all policy members. Exchange Mailbox
Manager reguarly scans and processes user mailboxes in order to
enforce corporate e-mail retention policies and conserve disk space
on the local Exchange server. More...
Mailbox Manager is an Exchange utility that
enforces each recipient mailbox policy. You add
some or all users to a mailbox recipient policy, and you can choose
to monitor some or all of their mailbox folders. More...
The size and complexity of your Exchange
organization may warrant the use of additional recipient policies.
For example, a large company might want to create a recipient
policy for each department, or a company with an international
presence might want to create a recipient policy for each branch
