Default Recipient Policy update error shows legacy MS and CCMAIL address policies

After the transition to Exchange 2007 you might find that the update of objects in Active Directory fails when you try to run Update of Default Recipient Policy. You get an error stating the there are legacy Exchange address policies (CCMAIL and MS) in Default Policy and update is not actually run. If you edit Default Policy in Exchange Management Console you see that there are none of MS and CCMAIL entries in your policy.

To resolve this issue you need to edit your policy in Active Directory using ADSIEdit tool and delete disabledGatewayProxy entries of MS and CCMAIL
  • Add ADSIEdit snap-in to MMC console (Support Tools must be installed in order to be able to add ADSIEdit)
  • Connect to Configuration Naming Context
  • Browse to Services --> Microsoft Exchange --> YOURORGANIZATON --> Recipient Policies
  • On the right click Properties of Default Policy
  • Click Show only objects with entries
  • Find disabledGatewayProxy
  • Edit its content
  • Remove:
    • MS:ORGANIZATIONNAME/ORGANIZATIONNAME
    • CCMAIL: at ORGANIZATIONNAME
  • Repeat this step for all the policies in your organization that include these two entries
