Change E-Mail Address Policy Priorities

Exchange 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Change Priority dialog box to change the priority of your e-mail address policies.

When you create an e-mail address policy in the Exchange Management Console (EMC), or when you create a policy in the Exchange Management Shell and don't define the priority, by default, the new e-mail address policy will be assigned a priority of 1. However, if you already specified a priority for the policy, subsequent policies that you create will be assigned a lower priority.

For example, let's say you already have two e-mail address policies, and you used the EMC or the Shell to assign them priorities of 1 and 2. If you create another policy, it will automatically be assigned a priority of 3. However, let's say you have two policies, and you used the EMC or the Shell to specify that one of them is priority 1, but the other policy was assigned a default priority of 2 when it was created. In this case, the next policy you create will, by default, become the priority 2 policy. The previous priority 2 policy will be assigned a priority of 3.

noteNote:
You can't change the priority of the Default Policy. The Default Policy's priority will always be "Lowest".
