Exchange 2003 & Recipient Policies

I've just been talking with a colleague who was trying to create additional Exchange 2000 recipient policies in a mixed mode Exchange 2000 / Exchange 5.5 environment. Of course, it is not possible to do this, since Exchange 5.5 doesn't understand multiple addresses within its Site Addressing, which is where the recipient policies are derived from when coexisting.

This reminded me of something I read recently regarding Exchange 2003 and creating additional proxy addresses via recipient policies. With Exchange 2003, it is now possible via recipient policies to create additional SMTP addresses for users with mailboxes on Exchange 2000 or 2003, even when coexisting with Exchange 5.5 in the Admin Group/Site.

Yet another useful feature during the migration process.
