Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

You can use the EMC or the Shell to remove an e-mail address policy. By default, Exchange contains an e-mail address policy that specifies the recipient's alias as the local part of the e-mail address and uses the default accepted domain. The local part of an e-mail address is the name that appears before the "at" sign (@).This e-mail address policy applies to all users in the organization. You can't remove this e-mail address policy.

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

noteNote:
If you remove an e-mail address policy that's used by recipients as the primary e-mail address policy, and no other e-mail address policies have been configured for recipients, the default e-mail address policy will be used.
