Managing Recipients

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-04-18

In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, recipients are comprised of mailbox users, mail-enabled users, mail contacts, distribution groups, security groups, dynamic distribution groups, and mail-enabled public folders.

In previous versions of Exchange Server, you performed recipient management tasks in Active Directory Users and Computers. In Exchange 2007, you can perform these management tasks in both the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell. However, although you can perform all recipient management tasks in the Exchange Management Shell, only some are performed in the Exchange Management Console.

The following topics list the management tasks that you can perform for a specific recipient type.

  • Managing User Mailboxes
    This topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for user mailboxes and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. The tasks you can perform for user mailboxes include creating mailboxes, disabling or removing mailboxes, configuring mailbox properties and features, and connecting mailboxes.
  • Managing Resource Mailboxes
    This topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for resource mailboxes and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. The tasks you can perform for resource mailboxes include creating resource mailboxes, configuring resource mailbox properties, configuring automatic booking, and setting delegates and access rights.
  • Moving Mailboxes
    This topic lists the management tasks that involve moving mailboxes and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. The tasks involving moving mailboxes include moving a mailbox within a single forest, moving a mailbox across forests, and merging mailboxes.
  • Managing Mail Contacts and Mail Users
    This topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for mail contacts and mail users, and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. Mail contacts and mail users both represent people or organizations that exist outside your Exchange organization. Both recipient types are managed using the Mail Contact node under Recipient Configuration in the Exchange Management Console.
  • Managing Distribution Groups
    This topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for distribution groups and dynamic distribution groups, and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. The tasks you can perform for distribution groups include creating distribution groups, disabling or removing distribution groups, adding or removing distribution group members, and viewing the members of a dynamic distribution group.
  • Managing Public Folders
    The "Managing Mail-Enabled Public Folders" section of this topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for mail-enabled public folders. A mail-enabled public folder is a public folder that has an e-mail address. Mail-enabling a public folder provides an extra level of functionality to users. In addition to being able to post messages to the folder, users can send e-mail messages to, and sometimes receive e-mail messages from, the public folder.
  • Managing the Microsoft Exchange Recipient
    This topic lists the management tasks that you can perform for the Microsoft Exchange Recipient. The Microsoft Exchange recipient is a special recipient object that provides a unified and well-known message sender that differentiates system-generated messages from other messages. It replaces the “System Administrator” sender that was used for system-generated messages in earlier versions of Microsoft Exchange Server.

The following is a list of management tasks that apply to multiple recipient types, and includes links to topics that will help you complete the tasks. Unless otherwise noted, these tasks can be performed by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.

  • How to Use Templates to Create Recipients
    This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to create recipients by using an existing recipient as a template. Using a recipient template is an efficient way to provision recipients in a consistent manner without having to explicitly specify all configuration settings.
    You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to create recipients by using templates. You must use the appropriate New- cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell that corresponds to the recipient type you are creating.
  • How to Secure Recipient Templates
    A recipient template is not associated with a real person, resource, or group. Therefore, you should secure recipient templates to minimize the risks that are associated with having a generic account. This topic explains how to use Active Directory Users and Computers and the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to secure recipient templates.
  • How to Configure Message Delivery Restrictions
    This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to configure message delivery restrictions.
    Exchange 2007 allows you to place restrictions on how messages are delivered to individual recipients. Message delivery restrictions can be useful for controlling access to specific recipients in your Exchange 2007 organization.
  • Creating Filters in Recipient Commands
    Several Exchange Management Shell commands allow you to filter a set of recipients. There are two types of filtering with Exchange commands: filtering results and filtering attributes within a command.
    To filter results, you must use a custom filter. To filter attributes within a command, you can use either a precanned filter or a custom filter.
    You can use precanned filters in both the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell. You can use custom filters only in the Exchange Management Shell.
  • How to Change the Recipient Scope
    This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to change the recipient scope. Recipient scope refers to the specified portion of the Active Directory hierarchy that the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell uses for recipient management. When you set the recipient scope to a specific location within Active Directory, you can view and manage all recipients stored in that location and all of the containers under it.
