Managing Exchange Servers

Review Policies

Policies, a new feature for Exchange, are designed to enable flexible administration of large numbers of Exchange objects. A policy is a collection of configuration settings that you apply to one or more Exchange objects of the same class; for example, you can define a policy that controls configuration settings across multiple servers. Once you define and implement these policies, you can change the configuration of all servers by editing the policy and applying the changes.

To review policies:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to the server container in the console tree.
