Removal of SMTP address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I added a second domain a while back to the default policy. The powers that be (!) now do not want to recieve e-mail from this domain globally but only want 4 individuals to recieve mail from the second domain. I created a seconde-mail policy, and I have set it up so that if a person is in a certain department they get the second domain (and the default one). However how do I remove the SMTP address from all the other users? I have re-run the default policy wizard removing the second domain but all the users are showing the second domain still, even the ones not in the "department".

    Anyone have any ideas? Many thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Mailbox policies don't delete e-mail addresses.
    It only "adds" addresses when "missing" according to the policy.

    2 options:

    1. Manualy remove the email-adresses from the users.
    2. Make a script that removes the mail address with that domain from the email address proxy collection of every user.

    Ps: if you don't have any special e-mail addressess you can just clear the smtp field of all user mailboxes with EMS. E-mail address policy will fill it back in. But this is very risky if you have a large amount of users, and its hard to find out if there are non-standard email address policy e-mail addresses at the user mailboxes...

    Greetzz,

    Timmy
