Exchange 2010 “Default Policy” Edit Error

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

You get the error message when trying to edit the “Default Policy”

The specified e-mail address policy couldn’t be edited. E-mail address policies with legacy versions of Exchange must be upgraded using the “Set-EmailAddressPolicy” task with the Exchange 2010 filter specified.

What this means is that you havent upgraded you Default Policy after migration from Exchange 2003. You need to upgrade the policies, run the following command from the Exchange Management Shell:

Get-EmailAddressPolicy | where {$_.RecipientFilterType –eq “Legacy”} | Set-EmailAddressPolicy –IncludedRecipients AllRecipients
