Use the E-Mail Addresses page of the New E-Mail Address Policy wizard to configure the e-mail addresses for your address policy. You can Add, Edit, Remove, or Set as Reply for your e-mail addresses. You can also configure Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) or custom e-mail address types.

When creating an e-mail address policy, you can use the following e-mail address types:

  • Precanned Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) e-mail address. Precanned SMTP e-mail addresses are commonly used e-mail address types that are provided for you.

  • Custom SMTP e-mail address. If you do not want to use one of the precanned SMTP e-mail addresses, you can specify a custom SMTP e-mail address.

    When creating a custom SMTP e-mail address, you can use the variables in the following table to specify alternate values for the local part of the e-mail address.


    Variable Value


    Given name (first name)


    Middle initial


    Surname (last name)


    Display name


    Exchange alias


    Uses the x number of letters of the surname. For example if x=2, the first two letters of the surname are used.


    Uses the x number of letters of the given name. For example, if x=2, the first two letters of the given name are used.

  • Non-SMTP e-mail address. The following types of non-SMTP e-mail addresses are supported:

    • EX (Legacy DN Proxy Address Prefix DisplayName)

    • X.500

    • X.400

    • MSMail

    • Cc:Mail

    • Lotus Notes

    • Novell GroupWise

    • Exchange Unified Messaging proxy address (EUM proxy address)

In Exchange 2007, all non-SMTP e-mail addresses are considered custom addresses. Exchange 2007 does not provide unique dialog boxes or property pages for X.400, GroupWise, or Lotus Notes e-mail address types. If you add a non-SMTP custom e-mail address, you must have the appropriate dynamic-link library (DLL) files. If you do not provide the appropriate DLL files, you will not be able to create a customized e-mail address policy. The following error will be logged in Event Viewer: "The e-mail address description object in the Microsoft Exchange directory for the 'SADF' address type on 'i386' machines are missing."

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


Click this button to edit the settings you made for the e-mail address. Depending on the type of address you created, the SMTP E-Mail Address or the Custom Address dialog box appears. For information about these dialog boxes, see the following topics:

Set as Reply

Use this option to set your selected custom address as the "reply to" address. This option makes the e-mail address the primary address for this type. This is the address that is seen by other users and is the address to which they reply.
