By default, there is no method of sorting users into recipient policies based upon their Administrative Group. However, you can create a search by creating a custom LDAP query, as described in the "More Information" section.
Using the Exchange System Manager Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, create a new recipients policy:
- In the Find Exchange Recipient window, click Custom Search from the Find menu.
- Click the Advanced tab.
- In the Enter LDAP Query box, type an LDAP query specifying the Administration Group you want to sort. The base query is
Orgis your organization, and /ou=
AdminGroupis the Administration Group that you are sorting.
For example, a query for the First Administration Group would look like the following:
(&(mailNickname=*)(legacyExchangeDN=/o=Organization/ou=First Administration Group/*))
Whenever an Exchange object is created in Active Directory, an attribute called legacyExchangeDN is assigned. The legacyExchangeDN attribute still maps a site object, and because Sites and Administration Groups have a 1:1 mapping, the recipients policy will affect all users within a specified Administration Group.
The queries are based on Request for Comments (RFC) 2254.
