New E-Mail Address Policy Wizard > Introduction Page

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2006-12-20

For a recipient to receive or send e-mail messages, the recipient must have an e-mail address. E-mail address policies allow you to generate e-mail addresses for each recipient in your organization. Use the New E-Mail Address Policy wizard to create a new e-mail address policy. E-mail address policies generate e-mail addresses for your users, contacts, and groups so they can receive and send e-mail.

You can also use the Exchange Management Shell to create and manage e-mail address policies. For more information, see the following topics:

Use this wizard page to configure the following attributes of an e-mail address policy.

Name

Use this text box to create the display name for the new e-mail address policy. The name can contain as many as 64 characters but cannot include wildcard characters.

All recipients types

Select this option to apply the e-mail address policy to all recipient types. In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, recipients are comprised of mailbox users, mail-enabled users, mail contacts, mail-enabled distribution and security groups, and mail-enabled public folders.

The following specific types

Select this option to apply the e-mail address policy to specific recipient types. You can select one or more of the following recipient types:

  • Users with Exchange mailboxes   Select this check box if you want your e-mail address policy to apply to users with Exchange 2007, Exchange Server 2003, and Exchange 2000 Server mailboxes. Users with Exchange mailboxes are those that have a user domain account and a mailbox in the Exchange organization.
  • Users with external e-mail addresses   Select this check box if you want your e-mail address policy to apply to users with external e-mail addresses. Users with external e-mail accounts have user domain accounts in Active Directory, but use e-mail accounts that are external to the organization. This enables them to be included in the global address list (GAL) and added to distribution lists.
  • Resource mailboxes   Select this check box if you want your e-mail address policy to apply to Exchange resource mailboxes. Resources mailboxes allow you to administer company resources through a mailbox, such as a conference room or company vehicle.
  • Contacts with external e-mail addresses   Select this check box if you want your e-mail address policy to apply to contacts with external e-mail addresses. Contacts with external e-mail accounts do not have user domain accounts in Active Directory, but the external e-mail address is available in the GAL.
  • Mail-enabled groups   Select this check box if you want your e-mail address policy to apply to security groups or distribution groups that have been mail-enabled. Mail-enabled groups are similar distribution groups. E-mail messages that are sent to a mail-enabled group account will be delivered to several recipients.
