Chapter 13Basics of Recipient Management

The term Exchange recipient defines any mail or mailbox-enabled object in Active Directory used to send or receive email within an Exchange organization.

Depending on the size of your organization, recipient management (handling the user accounts, groups, contacts, public folders, and other resources that can receive email) may consume the vast majority of Exchange administration time. In a small organization, you may be responsible for every aspect of your Exchange server, including creating and managing recipients. In a larger organization with lots of changes, new users, and users leaving the organization, recipient administration will probably be handled by a person or team that is separate from the person or team that manages the Exchange Server infrastructure (message routing, backups, server maintenance, and so on).

This chapter discusses the basics of recipient management. It examines the environment configurations that must exist to support recipient management and the tools you use to manage recipients. It also examines Exchange address lists and how email addresses are defined.

IN THIS CHAPTER, YOU WILL LEARN TO:

  • Use the Exchange Admin Center to manage recipients
  • Configure accepted domains and define email address policies
