Understanding Recipient Policies
Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-22
To receive letters and packages, a person must have a mailing address to give to senders. This mailing address can be a business address, the physical address of his or her home, or a post office box. Likewise, for a recipient to receive messages in an Exchange mailbox, the recipient must have an e-mail address.
To generate e-mail addresses for each recipient in an organization, you use recipient policies. This section focuses on how recipient policies manage these e-mail addresses, and also how recipient policies manage mailboxes using the Mailbox Manager.
|Recipient policies also establish the mail domain for which Exchange accepts incoming mail. For more information, see "Understanding and Configuring Message Routing and Transport."|
