Managing Recipient Settings

Select a Primary Address

If you have added multiple e-mail addresses of the same address type, you must select a primary address. The primary address is the address that appears in the From field of the e-mail message.

By default, the first address created for each address type is the primary address and appears in bold in Generation rules. If you created more than one address for an address type, select the address that you want to be the primary address.

To select a primary reply address:

  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, select the address you want to use for the primary address.
  6. Click Set as Primary, and then click Apply.
  7. Important   When you click Apply you will 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.
