Managing Recipient Settings

Understanding Recipient Policies

A recipient policy is a collection of configuration settings that enable you to define system policies across your entire Active Directory. Once a policy is implemented, you can change configuration options or enforce settings for multiple objects in a single operation. Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server uses Windows 2000's powerful Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) query interface to select the filter rules that define recipient policy membership.

E-Mail Address Recipient Policies

E-mail addresses identify recipients to the gateways and connectors that connect Exchange with other messaging systems, such as Lotus cc:Mail and GroupWise. E-mail addresses are used to define the valid formats for addressing inbound e-mail to the Exchange system. Recipient policies automatically generate e-mail addresses for the recipients who have been defined by the recipient policy based on the e-mail addresses that you specified when you created or modified a recipient policy.

When all components of Exchange 2000 are installed, recipient policies can automatically generate e-mail addresses for Lotus cc:Mail, GroupWise, MS Mail, Lotus Notes, SMTP, and X.400 address types.

Notes   With the exception of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and X.400 address types, addresses are not generated unless you enable the address on the E-mail addresses tab of the recipient policy Properties dialog box. (See Add an Address to a Recipient Policy.)
