Managing Recipient Settings

Managing Recipient Policies

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.
