Exchange 2010: “Set as Reply” greyed out


Changing the primary SMTP e-mail address in Exchange system is as easy as select a e-mail address & set as reply in E-Mail Addresses tab in Mailbox properties. Well, now it’s greyed out. Baffled? Don’t be.

Answer: Uncheck the option for Automatically update e-mail addresses based on e-mail address policy. That’s it. E-mail address policy is being applied to this mailbox, that’s why you can’t change the default settings.

  1. I just found this article which solved my problem… thank you for that. Ironically, at the bottom of the article was an add from Staples, the office supply store. In thinking about the answer to this article a Staples marketing phrase comes to mind… “WOW, That was Easy!”. The easy button definitely applies to this solution!!!!!
