    Exchange 2007 Where is the default Email policy set?

    Another reason to do some training course has shown itself

    We have just moved from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007

    I moved my staff users and mailboxes over with little problems ... but these have been ironed out.

    The issue is the 1000 students!
    They have to be re set up as the mailboxes have not been moved over from Exchange 2003.

    However Server 2008 and exchange 2007 do not operate in the same way I cant find a multi user setup tool to set all 1000 students ... or subset thereof.


    Am I once again displaying a large amount of dork? (rhetorical)


    Please help

    Yes indeed. This functionality, along with most 'bulk' operations, has been moved into the management shell.

    Best you get acquainted.

    Unhappy M drive on Exchange 2007 no more??

    sorry to highjack this thread.

    We have just uprarded our servers and the exchange 2007 server doesn't seem to have the option to show the M:\ drive and I also wanted to know how to delegate acess to their mailboxes throu Outlook?

    Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

    The M drive hasn't been seen since Exchange 2000.

    One pitfall to watchout for in Exchange 2007 is:

    If you need to delete a users mailbox - Do NOT click "Remove" on a users mailbox context menu as this action also removes it from Active Directory!!! You have to use Disable!



    I like Exchange 2007 but find that it seems to have become a lot more complex to do tasks that were simple in 2003 (Internet Email for example! and bulk actions as well like Query based Distribution Lists)

    I used it on exchange 2003 R2 version; I had to alter the registry to get the M drive.

    I agree with you; it tooks us three days to get the internet email to work on Exchange 2007. Also I can't seem to find the option where I can delegate myself full access to mail boxes, as it's a most when checking mailboxes which are full and when asked by users to check any problems.

    Thanks

    right click the mailbox in question - and click Mange Full Access Permission
    Add yourself to the list

    Do this for all other mailboxes

    There is a PS command to do it to all mailboxes but not sure what it is off the top of my head....

    Found it! - http://exchangepedia.com/blog/2007/0...ox-access.html - this link gives both GUI and PS commands for Full Access Permissions

    If you think mailbox rights is elusive, just wait until you want different recipient policies applied to different mail DBs e.g.

    New-EmailAddressPolicy 'Test Address Policy' -RecipientFilter {((Database -eq 'CN=Mailbox Database,CN=Test Storage Group,CN=InformationStore,CN=SVR-NETBIOS,CN=Servers,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Some Organisation,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=EXAMPLE,D C=COM') -and (RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox'))} -EnabledPrimarySMTPAddressTemplate 'SMTP:%m@example.com'

    Adjust and repeat for each DB.

    Oh look, it's long enough for the forum to decide to put a space in the second "DC"... I just love Exchange powershell commands.
