Recipient email address policy scheduling

Recipient email address policy scheduling

Recipient email address policy scheduling

When creating/updating a recipient policy it is possible to have it 'Do not apply', 'Immediately' or 'At the following time' but the latter option is a one off. It does not schedule this to recur. It doesn't even create an entry in 'Task Scheduler' that I could edit to recur.

The reason I'd like to have this run regularly is that names change in AD occasionally, the names are updated in Exchange (obviously) but the email address policy is not applied and does not reflect the name change for the email address for that user.

A bit of Googling led me to the command Update-EmailAddressPolicy -Identity PolicyNameGoesHere. is it as simple as creating a Powershell script to run that command and using Task Scheduler to run it frequently?

RE: Recipient email address policy scheduling

Yep, it's that simple.

Done. I've scheduled it to run once a day.
