Managing Recipient Settings

Disable E-mail Address Generation

You can disable automatic e-mail address generation for unnecessary individual address types to reduce network traffic and disk space usage when creating recipients. Disabling automatic generation for a particular address does not remove the address from the recipient policy, but it does prevent it from generating an address for a new recipient.

In Exchange, you must have at least one SMTP and X.400 address type enabled. By default, if an address type has only one address, then that address is the primary address.

To disable e-mail address generation for a recipient policy:

  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 Recipient Policies.
  3. In the details pane, double-click the recipient policy you are modifying.
  4. To keep track of information concerning the recipient policy you modified, click the Details tab. In Administrative note, type information about the address you added to the recipient policy.
  5. On the E-Mail Addresses tab, click to clear the check box to the left of the e-mail address you are disabling, and then click Apply.
