E-mail address policies generate the primary and secondary e-mail addresses for your recipients (which include users, contacts, and groups) so they can receive and send e-mail. After you create an e-mail address policy, you need to apply it to the intended recipients for the policy to take effect.

noteNote:
Although this topic shows you how to use the Apply E-Mail Address Policy wizard to apply an e-mail address policy, the New E-Mail Address Policy and the Edit E-Mail Address Policy wizards also allow you to apply the policy as you create or edit it.

Looking for other management tasks related to e-mail address policies? Check out Managing E-Mail Address Policies.

You can't edit e-mail address policies that were created in the Shell with a recipient filter. For more information, see Create an E-Mail Address Policy By Using Recipient Filters.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "E-mail address policies" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Hub Transport.

  2. In the result pane, click the E-Mail Address Policies tab, and then select the e-mail address policy that you want to apply.

  3. In the action pane, click Apply.

  4. On the Introduction page, complete the following fields:

    • Apply the e-mail address policy   Select one of the following schedule settings to specify when the e-mail address policy should be applied:

      Immediately   Select this option to apply the e-mail address policy immediately.

      At the following time   Select this option and use the corresponding lists to specify a time to apply the e-mail address policy.

    • Cancel tasks that are still running after (hours)   Select this check box and use the corresponding text box to specify how long the e-mail address policy task will run. The default is 8 hours.

  5. On the Apply E-Mail Address Policy page, review your configuration settings. Click Apply to apply the e-mail address policy. Click Back to make configuration changes.

    noteNote:
    Although the process begins when you click Apply, you may have to wait several hours for the process to complete and the e-mail address policy to be applied.
  6. On the Completion page, review the following, and then click Finish to close the wizard:

    • A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully.

    • A status of Failed indicates that the task wasn't completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "E-mail address policies" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

This example applies the e-mail address policy Marketing.

Although running the Update-EmailAddressPolicy cmdlet starts the update process, you may have to wait several hours for the process to complete and the e-mail address policy to be applied.
