Managing Recipient Settings

Remove an E-mail Address From a Recipient Policy

You can remove unneccessary addresses from a recipient policy to reduce network traffic and disk space usage when creating users.

Tip   If you want to add this address to this policy in the future, disable the address by clicking to clear the check box next to the e-mail address, instead of clicking Remove. The e-mail address will not be generated for recipient policy members. To enable the address later, select the check box that you cleared.

To remove an e-mail address from 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 on 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 are removing from the recipient policy.
  5. In the E-Mail Addresses tab, select the e-mail address you want to remove, click Remove, and then click Apply.
  6. Important   When you click Apply you may be asked if you want to update all corresponding recipient e-mail addresses to match the changes you made. If you click Yes, the changes made to the recipient policy are applied to the recipients defined for the policy. E-mail addresses previously configured for these recipients will be demoted to secondary addresses.
