My local domain name is xyz.Local while my external domain name is xyz.com, i  have added xyz.com to my accepted domain and even made it default. I tried to edit the default email address policy to set the xyz.com as my primary reply address but i get this error: "The operation cannot perform on the default email address policy"

  • Yes, you are correct that's a bug while editing just default email address policy through EMC and will be solved before RTM...

    Yes, it opens IE because product is still in RC stage and Exchange 2010 TechNet is being written so you can find more updated contents online, but we may have help/chm file when it is RTMed and TechNet is fully up to date... :)

  • Consider creating new email address policy with primary smtp address xyz.com and secondary with xyz.local (to continue receiving reply for xyz.local address).

  • Seems some problem in GUI, this should work from EMS with below cmdlet to modify Default Policy...

    Set-EmailAddressPolicy -EnabledEmailAddressTemplates 'smtp:%g.%s@xyz.local','SMTP:%g.%s@xyz.com' -identity 'Default Policy'

    Update-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity "Default Policy"

  • Thanks a great deal Amit, i guess as you said it's a GUI problem and it appears to affect the default policy alone. i say this, because if i create a new EAP as you earlier suggested, i can edit it and apply the changes successfully.

    I used the cmdlet above to modify it and it was successful.

    One more thing the exchange help file try to open with IE, is this normal?

    Once again, thanks a lot for your help
