Exchange 2003 Recipient Policy
OK so I think I have created a bit of a mess.
I downloaded a TEC sheet from RM on "How to add an additional domain to a Microsoft Exchange server."
It seemed easy enough and I added the extra 4 new domains in the recipient policy. This then updated to all users but the new domains were using the alias rather than the current naming scheme, for example:
New domains: Alias@domain2.com
In an effort to make all the emails the same (InitialSurname) I used a replacement string: How to Modify an SMTP E-Mail Address by Using Recipient Policies.
I then found out that it is not recommended to add more domains in the default recipient policy so I removed them and created a new policy with the new domains and replacement strings. It then appeared that Exchange got confused and was adding email addresses to users all over the place so I cut my losses and removed the domains to start again, leaving only the default there as before.
Turns out that 24 hours later and after rebuilding/applying the recipient policy and RUS the new SMTP addresses are still in the users mailboxes with the wrong naming scheme. Is there a way I can remedy this? Have I got to go through each user individually to edit them?
Please excuse my poor explanation but I am soon to be entering panic mode.
Thanks all in advance.
