Managing Recipient Settings

Define Filters Using Users, Contacts, and Groups Search Category

You can define recipient policy membership when you create a new recipient policy. However, if the needs of your organization change, you can modify the search filters that determine recipient policy membership.

To define or modify search filters based on users, contacts, and groups:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. In the console tree, double-click Recipients, and then double-click Recipient Policies.
  3. In the details pane, right-click the recipient policy you want to modify, and then click Properties.
  4. On the General tab, click Modify.
  5. In the Find dialog box, in the Find drop-down list, select Users, Contacts, and Groups.
  6. On the Users, Contacts, and Groups tab, in Name and Description, type descriptive information.
  7. To show only Exchange recipients, on the Exchange tab, click Show only Exchange recipients, and then select the recipient categories that best match the recipient policy membership you are defining and changing.
  8. On the Advanced tab, select the characteristics of recipient policy members based on attributes.
  9. Preview the results of the search filters you selected.
  10. If you want to clear the filter rules you defined, click Clear All.

Tip   E-mail message recipient policies and mailbox recipient policies can share the same filter. In other words, after you filter a group of users, you can apply both an e-mail address recipient policy and a mailbox recipient policy to the filtered group.
